The terrific smell of barbecue chicken, ribs and pulled pork will be in the air at Mount St. Mary's Hospital from 3-6 p.m. Friday, May 1, for the St. Francis Guild's 17th annual chicken and ribs barbecue. Krolick's will cook the food. All proceeds will benefit the hospital.
"This is such a fun event, with the drive-thru service for an easy Friday night supper, all to benefit our community's health care. We are thankful for the wonderful support," said Marie Chiarenza, president of the St. Francis Guild.
Last year, more than 300 dinners were sold. Those picking up or purchasing dinners can drive to the traffic circle on the north side of the hospital for service. The dinners include chicken, ribs or pulled pork, two sides and a roll. Drive-thru service is available from the hospital's north (outpatient) lobby.
Advance sale tickets are $9.50 for chicken, $8.50 for a pulled-pork sandwich, and $12 for a 1/3rd rack of ribs. Advance sale purchases are guaranteed. Add 50 cents for the chicken and pulled pork for purchase on the day of the event. Ribs will not be sold at the door.
Tickets can be purchased from the hospital's gift shop, volunteer office, or by calling 716-298-2144.
