Top two face off in September

On Thursday, Aug. 14, United Way of Nevada County held its 2nd annual BBQ Battle of the Sexes in downtown Grass Valley with women’s division and men’s division winners.

The She Devils won the title for the women with their baby-back ribs, and Those Bar-B-Que Guys won in the men’s division serving up their marinated tri-tip. Tasting ticket and raffle ticket purchases brought in $4,000 ” twice last year’s take, according to Megan Timpany of United Way.

The raffled trip to Hawaii was won by a great-grandmother wishing to visit her family in Hawaii.
