Chicken dinners go fast for Holly Place

November 17, 2008|By HEATHER KEELS

HAGERSTOWN - The North Hagerstown Lions sold out of barbecue chicken dinners at a fundraiser Sunday in the parking lot of Always Ron's to benefit Holly Place, President Bo Perrow said.

The group sold about 450 dinners starting at 9 a.m., Perrow said. They ran out at about 3 p.m., he said.

The dinners consisted of a half chicken, baked beans, coleslaw and a roll for a minimum $6 donation. Many people gave more, Perrow said.

"We feel that it was very much a success," he said, adding that the group could probably have sold at least 25 more.

The fundraiser was the second chicken barbecue the group has held to benefit Holly Place, a group home on South Potomac Street for low-income senior citizens, several of whom have physical or mental disabilities. The first, on Nov. 2, also sold out, Perrow said.

Between the two events, the group has raised about $4,000, he said.

"We'll probably do another in the spring," Perrow said.
