6810 W Kellogg Suite# 140, Wichita, KS 67209


First Responders (Police, Firefighters, EMTs, and Paramedics) put their lives on the line every day for people they do not even know. They are more than good neighbors – they are our brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, and friends. While everyone else is running away, they are running towards the danger. We want to honor our local heroes with a special day.

We are forever indebted to all the untold good that first responders do. We are holding a Wichita Area First Responder Appreciation Day. This is designed as a way for our local businesses to say THANK YOU! to our first responders.

February 20, 2021 Noon – 6:00 PM.
The location is The Wichita BBQ Store at
6810 W. Kellogg Drive.
Each first responder will receive 1 raffle entry when they register.
Drawings will take place throughout the day. A variety of prizes will be raffled: many gift certificates from local businesses and restaurants, discounts on a variety of services, and 2 Green Mountain Pellet Grills.
  • We will have Munny’s Stove handing out free pulled pork sandwiches, sides, and drinks to all first responders and their families.
  • We will have info tables set up for all the sponsors mentioned below where they will offer special discounts for all first responders.
  • Weather permitting, we will have a bounce house for the kids.
  • KWLS 107.9 The radio will be doing a patriotic-themed live broadcast from the store.

We are asking local businesses for donations. We especially need items to be awarded during the drawings.

Gift certificates are especially needed. Over 2 dozen local businesses have already signed on.
