Over the years we have formed some incredible partnerships with local establishments across the valley, and in January of 2017 we were proud to add Dillon’s KC BBQ to that list. The Dillon’s Restaurant concept began in 1998, when Co-Owner George Valverde approached Rich Dillon to partner together to bring reality to Valverde’s vision. That vision DID become a reality bringing authentic Kansas City barbecue to the Valley of the Sun.
Our partnership with Dillon’s began with a single Auctions in Action (AiA) silent auction at the Arrowhead location. Fast forward 18 months and you will now find AiA’s at all four Dillon’s locations: Arrowhead, Thunderbird, Wildlife World Zoo and Lake Pleasant. Since that first silent auction we have now raised over $32k for deserving charities and non-profits!
The Arrowhead and Thunderbird locations were the first locations opened by Valverde and Dillon. Newly renovated, these locations are an ideal place to gather family and friends to enjoy amazing BBQ in a comfortable, at-home atmosphere.
The Wildlife World Zoo location is something you have never experienced. BBQ, drinks, and sharks…yes, we said SHARKS! Featuring a 60,000 gallon shark tank, this location is a one-of-a-kind, can’t miss experience.
Lake Pleasant is Dillon’s newest and largest location of the four. Located in Pleasant Harbor Marina at Lake Pleasant, you will enjoy amazing food, incredible views and weekly events including live music, dancing and more! Want a sneak peek? Visit the Dillon’s website to learn more.
Each week new auction items are on display and available to bid on in support of Dillon’s featured charity. Currently, Dillon’s is raising money for Folds of Honor, with Hensley Beverage Company graciously matching every penny raised for this important cause. Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to the families of our fallen or wounded veterans, so visit your nearest Dillon’s location, enjoy some amazing BBQ, and place a bid to help make a difference!
