Community Auctions

June 2022 | Featured Community Partner


Community Auctions is proud to recognize the Backyard Bistro of Raleigh, North Carolina as our Featured Community Partner for June 2022.  They were able to raise just under $1500 for the Duke Children’s Hospital in recent community events using the Community Auctions Platform.  We are so grateful for their support and partnership. 


The Backyard Bistro, located at 1235 Hurricane Alley Way in Raleigh, right across from the PNC Arena,  is the winner of the 2021 BlueRidge Small Business of the Year Award.  And it’s no wonder with all of their fabulous offerings.  Co-owner and Head Chef Joe Lumbrazo brings a culinary twist to classic southern favorites.  Some of the most popular items are Redneck Eggrolls with a tangy sauce, Bistro Shrimp & Grits served with spicy jalapeno cheddar grits, and his infamous Peanut Butter Pie.  Chef Lumbrazo’s creations are so delectable and unique that he has led a team of chefs to cook for Congressional delegations twice in the last 5 years.

We thank the Backyard Bistro of Raleigh for all they do for us and Duke Children’s Hospital.  We could not do what we do without the support of our incredible Community Partners.   Visit the Backyard Bistro the next time you’re in Raleigh and listen for Chef Lumbrazo’s coined catchphrase, “Only at the Backyard Bistro folks!”   You’ll be glad you did.
