Letter to the Editor

  • Written by  Staff

Editor,

The Pilot Club of Marianna and the Chipola Civic Club wish to extend our thanks and appreciation to the people of Marianna and Jackson County for your support of our recent Backpack for Kids Bar B Q fundraiser.  Because of your generous participation, we were able to prepare and serve over 400 Bar BQ pulled pork dinners.    

The success of this annual event would not have been possible without the help of many local organizations and businesses who contributed time, facilities, muscle power, cooking expertise, food, and financial consideration.  This group includes Beef O’Bradys, Sonny’s Bar B Q, Grocery Outlet, Winn Dixie, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Anchor Club at MHS, WTOT/WJAQ, Jackson County Floridan, Jackson County Times, the hardworking women and men of both organizations and the Backpack for Kids board members who came out to help us serve and greet diners.

All proceeds from the dinner will benefit the Backback for Kids - Jackson County, FL Program, which furnishes food to school-aged children who are in need of additional nutrition over weekends and school holidays. 

We offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who bought tickets or helped us in any way to make this event such a huge success so that we may continue to support our most valuable and vulnerable population, the children of Jackson County.

 

Sincerely,

Pilot Club of Marianna 

Chipola Civic Club
