Friday, April 12, head to Courtney’s Restaurant on Mt. Juliet Road for some memorable home-style country cooking, fancy door prizes, toe-tapping country music, and to help the Big Brothers of Mt. Juliet.
“It’s going to be lots of fun, and an opportunity to build up your treasury for the year ahead,” noted Sherry Bilbrey, president of the charitable organization that sponsors Mother’s Toy Store every Christmas in Mt. Juliet for the children of disadvantaged families. Additionally, Big Brothers provides families with holiday food boxes, and emergency assistance with utility bills during the years.
This year, however, Bilbrey is worried about having funds enough to aid everybody who needs it. “We’re getting calls on a nearly daily basis requesting our help. We hate to have to turn people away. We are thankful for all the friends we have in the community. We could really use their help right now.”
The fundraiser will run from 6 to 8 p.m. Drawing for door prizes will occur every half hour, with the grand prize, a Nikon camera, drawn last. This is the second year in a row that Big Brothers has teamed up with Courtney’s Restaurant. “We really appreciate all that Courtney’s does for us,” Ms. Bilbrey concluded.
