Chattanooga Breakfast Rotary Club Has I Smell Smoke Fundraiser

Friday, October 11, 2013

The Chattanooga Breakfast Rotary Club will host its third I Smell Smoke fundraiser on Nov. 22 and 23.  

Club members will smoke over 300 Boston Butts and spiral cut hams in the parking lot of Rivermont Presbyterian Church, 3319 Hixson Pike, overnight on Nov. 22 with distribution on Nov. 23 between 8-10:30 a.m.  

The smoked butts (7.5-8.5 pounds) are $30 each and the spiral cut hams (8-9 pounds) are $50.  Pre-orders are required and must be completed or turned in no later than Nov. 13.  For those that wish to donate a Boston Butt or a Smoked Ham to the Community Kitchen, that option is also available on the order form.  The online order (or a hard copy of the form may be downloaded) form is available at www.Ismellsmokebbq.com and can be mailed to:

Chattanooga Breakfast Rotary Club

Credit cards orders are also available via the website; however, a $1 surcharge fee will be applied. The receipt from the credit card order is the voucher for pickup on Nov. 23. 

All proceeds benefit the club’s local project fund which supports four neighborhood public elementary schools, such as purchasing a dictionary for every third and fourth grade student and a thesaurus for the fifth grade students.  For additional information on the fundraiser, or where to mail downloaded order forms, contact Andrew Scalf at either 967-4971 or ascalf@timesfreepress.com.
