I love barbecue. I love Poole’s Diner. And on November 7th, I’m going to really love me some barbecue made by Ashley Christensen of Poole’s Diner. This will be a special family-oriented fundraising meal benefiting the Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood (of which I’m the Chair of the Board), and I invite you to purchase your tickets via PayPal by going here.
Here’s the details: Poole’s Diner will be preparing the barbecue and the sides from 5:30 to 8:30 PM on Sunday, November 7th. Beer has been graciously donated by the great folks of Fullsteam Brewery in Durham (can anyone say “yum” to a Hogwash, hickory-smoked porter?). Heck, I might even make a dish or two (I can put my kids to work making pie). Tickets for adults are $75 and $35 for kids14 and under, and of that price, all but $25 is tax deductible.
Space truly is limited, as Poole’s is a pretty small place, and we’ll be looking to do two full turns of the restaurant. It’ll be a nice way to spend an evening, eating some great barbecue, and supporting a very worthy cause. Did you know that with this economy, the need for mental health services has dramatically increased, but there are fewer places where kids can get those services? Did you know that 90% of the kids who receive services from the Lucy Daniels Center receive some sort of assistance, and many families do not pay a dime? Did you know that when one child is helped with an emotional problem, that also benefits that child’s family and classroom? Did you know that I REALLY want to see you buy tickets for this event?
This is very important to me.
This is very important to the children of the Triangle.
And this may be the best barbecue you ever ate. Please join us.
