Black’s Barbecue – Corporate Hero

Please join us as we recognize Black’s Barbecue as our Corporate Hero for their volunteer leadership with AVANCE-Austin:

The simple act of coming together, breaking bread and giving thanks has helped nourish the dreams of AVANCE families and strengthened the bonds of mutual support. Since 2012, the Black family and staff have generously provided the food and service at our annual holiday party for AVANCE families. The financial value of their annual gift is in the tens of thousands, but the emotional impact is priceless.

“For over 3 generations, Black’s has been committed to serving in and around Austin. We are so happy to be a part of AVANCE and look forward to the Family Holiday Party each year.”

-Kent Black, Owner of Black’s Barbecue


The Original Black’s Barbecue, founded by Judge Edgar Black, Sr. in 1932, is the oldest BBQ in Texas always owned by the same family. Our gratitude goes out to Kent and Candice Black, as well as the next generation, Eric and Barrett, and their entire team. Their love and generosity has shown that Black’s Barbecue is synonymous with more than craft and tradition, but with community and welcoming spirit.
