    Grills and Games, All for a Good Cause!

    We were all smiles earlier this April at the GRID in St. Petersburg as the smell of barbecue, competition, and excitement filled the air! Following this year’s Tough Rougher competition, Power Design hosted our 2022 Survivor Competition, where 12 teams gathered to compete in a barbecue cook-off and test their teamwork abilities in five different Survivor games. The barbecue competition was judged by Tough Rougher competitors from across the nation, while the Survivor games were judged by volunteers from Tampa Bay Club Sports. The best part? All winnings from the competition were donated to charities chosen by the individual teams! You can find a video of the fun and festivities below!

    Each team at the Survivor Competition was made up of a Team Captain, a Pit Master, Competitive Players, and Team Supporters. These teams went head-to-head to see who could outwit, outplay, and out-grill the competition. By the end of the event, each team was awarded donations for their selected charities, with over $40,000 being raised in total.

    After hours of fierce competition and team building, the 2022 Tough Rougher contestants and Survivor games judges made their final decisions. The winners of this year’s Survivor Competition were:

    Overall Survivor Challenges Winner – Team Smoke Show – $15,000 towards John Hopkins All Children’s
    Survivor Games Winner – Team Smoke Show – $5,000 towards John Hopkins All Children’s
    BBQ Meat Winner – Risk it for the Brisket – $5,000 towards the Moffitt Cancer Center
    BBQ Side Winner – Teal Team 6 – $5,000 towards Instruments 4 Life

    The competition and camaraderie between Power Design employees were immense, but in typical Power Design fashion, we all worked together to achieve the best results possible. We work hard so we can play harder. Congratulations to our winning teams, and well done to all who competed!
