But these one-of-a-kind 24K Gold Ribs, valued at $1,968 aren’t for sale. They are using them to create awareness through social media, so that they can donate 100,000 meals to hungry children this summer with Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE), a food nonprofit based in Longwood, Florida.

All you have to do is retweet the official Good as Gold Tweet at to donate 20 meals to FCE, or a Like to donate 10 meals to FCE. These meals will be donated to children not only in Florida, but in the other seven states that Sonny’s is located in.

Starting today through July 31, fans can also visit for a chance to win an all-expenses-paid staycation here in Orlando where they will enjoy an exclusive rib dinner, hotel accommodations, attraction tickets, one-on-one pitmaster class, gift cards, and more.
