The 7th annual United Way of Dawson County BBQ this past weekend kicked off another year of fundraising for the group that raises money for partner agencies within the county. The BBQ, held Nov. 4 at board member Jim Watson’s home in Dawsonville, serves as a fundraiser itself, with a charge for tickets for attendance as well as raffle tickets being sold at the event. Event sponsors were Medical Plaza 400, Summit Industrial Construction and Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, which recently opened on Ga. 400.
