Grilling Tri-tip for Water Wells

San Luis Obispo, California, July 7, 2018 – Once again, Cannon’s Well Worth It Campaign – a charitable effort to build clean water projects for villages around the world – is grilling up tri-tip dinners to raise funds to build new water wells for those in need. This is Cannon’s eighth annual “Well Worth It Drive-Thru BBQ” and is a greatly anticipated event every year. The Drive-Thru BBQ takes place on July 31, 2018 at 1050 Southwood Drive in San Luis Obispo and runs from 4:00-6:00pm.

By purchasing a $45 ticket, participants not only provide clean water to a developing community, but they also receive a whole barbequed tri-tip, beans, bread, and salad to feed 4-5 people. Fortunately, you don’t have to live or work in SLO to participate in the fun; deliveries are available from Paso Robles to Santa Maria—just let us know when you make your purchase!

If barbecue isn’t your thing, but helping others is, we are partnering with CAPSLO and the Vets Center to donate dinners to local families and veterans in need. When purchasing a dinner, just let us know and we’ll take care of the rest. In the past, Cannon’s Well Worth It Campaign has provided dinners to more than 225 local families and veterans. That means your donations have benefited both the local community and our global neighbors!

Cannon’s Well Worth It Campaign began in 2010 as a proactive response to learning about the global water crisis. As engineers, planners, and surveyors, we thrive on finding solutions to problems, and Cannon’s Well Worth It Campaign is our platform to raise awareness and funds to provide clean drinkable water to some of the world’s poorest communities. To date, the Campaign has raised more than $118,000 in funds and has built over 24 wells in places throughout Africa and Asia.

Cannon and Blues Baseball

June 26th, 2018, San Luis Obispo–Cannon’s Well Worth It Campaign was honored as the charitable partner for local San Luis Obispo baseball team, the Blues, in a blowout 12-1 game against the MSBL All-Stars. Cannon’s Ron Giovannelli threw the first pitch of the evening, starting off the night for the victorious Blues, while spreading the Well Worth It message, and advertising the upcoming Drive-Thru BBQ.

Cannon’s annual Well Worth It Drive-Thru BBQ raises money to build clean water wells in developing countries, and is a highly anticipated, sell-out event year after year. Included in the BBQ dinner for 4-6 people is: one whole-trimmed tri-tip, beans, garlic-bread, salad, and the knowledge that your support helps people in developing countries have long-term access to clean water.

Since 2010, Cannon’s Well Worth It Campaign, with the help of our amazing community, has raised over $116,000 to build more than 20 wells in places like Uganda and Nigeria. If you would like to be involved in this effort and would like information about how you can help this cause, email Liz Moody at, or if you would like to purchase a ticket to the July 31st BBQ event at Cannon for yourself, or as a donation, click this link.

Local meteorologist helped raise funds for clean water

PG&E’s John Lindsey joined forces with Cannon Corp. for annual fundraiser

Taking a break from his winter forecasts, Central Coast meteorologist and weather columnist John Lindsey traded in his radar for a spatula on Valentine’s Day to help raise funds for water wells in developing nations.

The Well Worth It Campaign, launched by Cannon in 2010, hosted their 5th Annual Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser with food by Popolo Catering and coffee supplied by Lucy’s Coffee.

While Lindsey has written much about our recurring drought conditions, access to clean water remains an issue in many parts of the world. The Well Worth It campaign has raised enough money to fund the construction of more than 20 wells worldwide. Those wells help eliminate water-related illnesses, which are a serious health issue in underdeveloped countries like Ethiopia.

The morning’s efforts resulted in over $1,700 in funds raised. This equates to 85 people now having access to water in their local village.
