The Horn Lake Lions Club also holds the event as a fundraiser and to bring awareness to the club as a service organization in DeSoto County. One of the areas Lions as an International organization is involved in is the collection of old eyeglasses sunglasses, and reading glasses, for reuse to those in need.  

Clint Burns was the first-place winner in the competition and won $1,500 as the winner. Other cash awards ranged from $100-$750 in the steak division, $50-$500 in the ribs division, and $50-$200 in the dessert division.
