Q for a Cause is a barbeque competition benefiting PlaySmart. PlaySmart is a 501c3 non-profit that creates life changing academic and athletic experiences for youth across the United States. Socioeconomic disparities often means that certain groups of youth do not have access to quality academic and athletic programming. PlaySmart works by donations and with volunteers to level the playing field by offering programming and leadership that foster positive youth development.

In Omaha, key partnerships with Kroc Center Youth Sports, Partnerships for Live, Abide and Nothing But Net, we are able to reach over 1,000 youth. Our summer Leadership Academy brings close to 75 youth together at the Kroc Center for a week-long leadership academy AT NO COST. Schools that participated last summer were Bennington Middle School, Beveridge Middle School, DC West Middle School, Elkhorn Public Schools, Gretna Middle School, La Vista Middle School, Louisville Public Schools, Nebraska City Middle School, Plattsmouth Middle School, Plattesview Middle School, Ralston Middle School, Weeping Water Middle School.
