Crawfish Charity Boil – Steaming Results to Feed Seniors

Recently, The Hail Mary Sports Pub in Grayson raised more than $2,500 to benefit Gwinnett County Senior Services’ non-profit partner, Friends of Gwinnett County Senior Services (Friends).

Even though they have supported other local worthwhile causes in the past, this was their first fundraising effort to help the older population. The Crawfish Boil for Charity was a great success and monies will help support meals service for Gwinnett seniors.

Hail Mary General Manager Blake Hawkins proudly stated, “We are in the restaurant business, so we wanted to do something to help homebound seniors who might not be able to come in and dine. We could not have made this happen without Master Chef Ray Sessions and some of our vendors. We are honored to help our ‘greatest generation’.”

This year, Friends contributed more than $33,000 to supplement senior meals costs. Friends President Pam Tokarz said, “We do not want to lose any opportunity to feed our needy or frail seniors.”

For more information on Friends’ fundraising efforts or to make a donation to help feed a senior, please make a tax deductible donation to Friends of Gwinnett County Senior Services, P.O. Box 390025, Snellville, GA 30039 or contact Celia Moore at 770.822.8775 or
