The Cookout: A Black History Month Field Day Fundraiser

2023 Event Details Coming Soon!

Come one, Come all. Hotspots! celebrates black culture with an annual Black History Month Field Day Fundraiser every February. All proceeds go to a worthy organization that provide services in the advancement of Black and Brown LGBTQ+ people.

Working with local businesses and the City of Wilton Manors, The Cookout is one of Hotspots! continuing efforts to showcase that the City of Wilton Manors is welcoming to all races and ethnicities, and is committed to building upon the race relations within the diverse Island City.

The Cookout inaugural 2022 event saw local businesses within Wilton Manors and the surrounding area as well as city officials and neighboring friends and family come together to enjoy cultural food, refreshments, activities and music.

Symbolic Moments of Unity:

*Our 2022 liquor sponsor as new owners/management of LeBoy vigorously spoke out against racism when they first heard that their dark skin dancers experienced negative comments/treatment from a few of their patrons.

*Our 2022 food sponsor, The Pub, who serve soul food every Wednesday at their location, immediately took action and banned a patron for life when they heard of his racist remarks.

*City Officials, Vice Mayor Paul Rolli and Commissioner Chris Caputo read Wilton Manors City proclamation recognizing The Cookout as an annual Black History Month city event.

It is with unity and community that we eliminate hate. We support and uplift those who support and uplift all walks of life regardless of sex, age, creed, or race.
