SAVANNAH, GA. – JUNE 2, 2022 – The 200 Club of the Coastal Empire is holding its semi-annual Boston Butt fundraiser. Enjoy the south’s best BBQ while helping support the families of fallen first responders.

“Our Boston butt sale is such a great event that supporters have come to look forward to each year.

Wilcher for cooking and for hosting our pick-up, just in time for folks to enjoy a Boston butt over the 4th of July holiday.”
