Celebrity chef Guy Fieri has once again selected Operation BBQ Relief to return to the 2019 Players Tailgate, as one of the many amazing chefs to provide patrons with the best in food.  Since May of 2011, Operation BBQ Relief has served over 2.9 million quality barbecue meals in over 25 states and 54 communities across the United States of America to help feed displaced residents and emergency responders in the aftermath of natural disasters such as hurricanes and wildfires, such as the thousands affected by hurricanes Florence (Carolinas), Michael (Florida Panhandle) and the California wildfires.

The mission of The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is to empower people to take the protection of every human’s rights personally. Through sharing stories of courage and struggle around the world, especially with a poignant Martin Luther King Junior exhibit, The Center encourages visitors to gain a deeper understanding of the role they play in helping to protect the rights of all people.
