On the 25th of March at the Mississippi Gulf Coast the Gulf Coast Symphony’s Barbeque Under the Oaks fundraiser saw the debut of a new executive chef, David Lancaster, and a modified 1984 Mac fire truck grill made by Silver Slipper Casino executives. Having made this extraordinary decision they turned out to be sponsors of this annual event, thus letting everybody see their new fire truck equipped with a large smoker and grill and designed to serve large crowds, and taste their superb barbecue.
David’s responsibility at the event was to control what was going on, to help the cook and serve some barbecue chicken; smoked sausage, Jambalaya from the track. By the way, David Lancaster’s employment sheet may impress anybody. He has worked for Bellagio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada; Beau Rivage Hotel & Casino in Biloxi; the Copa Casino in Gulfport, Mississippi; for the Delta Downs Race Track Casino & Hotel in Vinton, Louisiana.
John N. Ferrucci, COO and GM of Silver Slipper Casino has mentioned, that it is in their plans to use this track for various charity events throughout the Mississippi Gulf Coast and Louisiana.
