Two years ago Grapevine Lake experienced one of the more devastating floods in recent memory. Businesses and parks all around the lake were deeply affected, among those being Big Daddy’s Ship Store.

In keeping with this phenomenal community, the City of Grapevine, Chamber of Commerce, and community residents responded with an outpouring of support after the flooding caused considerable damage and extended loss of business.

Big Daddy’s Ship Store prevailed. The lakeside restaurant continues to be a local hub for juicy burgers, fresh seafood and live entertainment. Now, Big Daddy’s Ship Store wants to give back.

“The community was there for us during the worst of times, and what better way to show our appreciation than to pay it forward through our local non-profit GRACE?” said Matt Armand, co-owner of Big Daddy’s Ship Store.

GRACE sees a seasonal decline during the summer months for essential items, including canned food and produce for the Food Pantry, which is what inspired Armand to host the summer benefit.

The business also reached out to corporate matchers and industry relationships, and has received contributions on behalf of GRACE from Sysco Foods, Grapevine Tom Thumb, Grapevine Target, and Grapevine Farmers Market.

Join us on Wednesday, July 19 from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Scott’s Landing Marina Club Room (neighboring Big Daddy’s) for barbecue and live entertainment.

Entry is a suggested donation of $10 to GRACE or a food donation that will benefit the GRACE Food Pantry.
