GREENVILLE – Kickoff began for the Linda Malott Chicken BBQ Benefit to be held on March 17, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; $7 pre-sale carry out tickets only. Tickets can be purchased at The A& B Coffee and Cake Co. or any Second National Bank, Darke County Location. The $7 meal includes 1/2 chicken, applesauce, chips, roll and butter prepared by Paul Mueller’s BBQ. Meals can be picked up between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Greenville City Park Shelter #3 next to the football field – look for the pink balloons! All proceeds go to the benefit of Linda Malott to assist with medical bills as she fights against breast cancer.
Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer late last year and went through a double mastectomy and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments. She is a single parent and had to give up a second job due to her illness. She returned to work at Darke County Job and Family Services only four weeks after surgery as she has exhausted her paid medical leave. The benefit will help with lost wages as well as medical bills.
The fundraising benefit is coordinated by friends and family and their goal is to sell a minimum of 750 tickets. The community is asked to participate in this very worthy event while enjoying some of Darke County’s finest BBQ chicken. Deadline to purchase tickets will be March 8.
