In Lieu of the 'Cue

EWAN will keep the spirit of the ‘Cue alive with a host of mini-fundraising events.

Sadly, yet another casualty of the pandemic will be our annual ‘Cue for a Cause, EWAN’s major fundraising event. In its place, we are planning a number of small fundraisers in which you can take part.

Trivia for a Cause

~ July 10, 2020 ~

Let’s face it. With the ‘Cue being just one of many fun events cancelled this summer, entertainment can be hard to come by. Here’s a little something to do, and as an added bonus, you’ll be raising money for EWAN!


Sign your team up here to play an on-line round of general trivia on Friday, July 10 from 7:30-8:30 pm. Hosted by Baig of Tricks Entertainment, you’re sure to have fun with this pub-style trivia event. You pay $30/device to play and could win some great prizes if you come out on top. Links to the You Tube event will be sent 24 hours in advance.

Complete the information below and click submit. You will be taken to a screen to finish your order and pay through PayPal.


Split the Pot Raffle for a Cause

~ Tickets Available Soon ~

Are you sad to be missing out on all those great raffle prizes at the ‘Cue? Well, all is not lost; you still have the opportunity to win some cold hard cash by buying split the pot raffle tickets online. Tickets can be purchased at right for $5 each or 6 for $25. We’ll do all the hard work of filling out your tickets (and let’s face it, that’s the worst part of a 50/50 raffle). The winner will be drawn on September 6 - the intended day of the ‘Cue.


T-Shirt for a Cause

~ Two order dates ~

Order your “We’ll be back” ‘Cue t-shirt. These are seriously cute shirts, and you will not want to miss out on the Pandemic shirt of the summer, memorializing the  ‘Cue that wasn’t. These super-soft and comfortable shirts will be available in men’s, ladies’, and children’s sizes, and can be ordered in blue or red. You might just want one of each! Deadline for July delivery is July 12 with a second round of orders due September 9 for a September delivery.


BBQ Jim's for a Cause

~ September 6 ~

Would your summer be incomplete without some BBQ Jim’s signature pulled pork or brisket? No need to fear! Jim Lawshe and wife Mary Beth will be bringing their food truck to the City Lot at York and Vallette (yep, site of the ‘Cue) and will be serving up all you need to scratch that barbecue itch. BBQ Jim’s is generously donating all food profits to EWAN, so order plenty! Stay tuned for hours and menu items.


Concert for a Cause

~ September 6  (if able) ~

If we’ve learned nothing from COVID-19, we’ve learned you can’t plan too far ahead. IF circumstances allow, we may be offering up a chance to accompany your barbecue with some great music from one of our favorite ‘Cue bands, Forget Hannah. We’ll be sure to let you know when we know if the concert can happen.
