Chicken Que is committed to raising funds to support Sonoma County 4-H programs. In 2020, we were grateful to the 4-H community and the community at large for supporting our youth programs virtually through the radiothon. In 2021, we are looking forward to being back at the BBQ. Even if it is only drive-thru, it’s exciting to be able to continue the Chicken Que tradition.
