Blue Rooster Broyhill Christmas Project
Mary And Santa in 2017
The amazing team at The Blue Rooster Southern Grill, has been behind the scenes cooking and serving at this event for the last 6 years. From handmade cookies, cakes, and candy, to a carved ham display, hand breaded fried chicken and incredible sides. This is one party where food is crafted from the heart and served with love.
It all started in 2011, when Steve Redmond and Mary Earnest, proprietors of the Blue Rooster Southern Grill, fished one of the Pigeon Valley Bassmasters' fundraising tournaments at Lake Keowee. During the weigh-in that day, Mr Ray McNeil of PV Bassmasters explained to the crowd that all of the money raised that day was to be spent on gifts for the big Broyhill Christmas party. Mary asked Ray that sunny afternoon if she could help with the party by "bringing some cookies or something". Ray told Mary then that she could make anything she wanted because the funds raised at the fishing events were spent directly on kids' gifts. Almost no money was budgeted for the food at the party. Mary told Ray that day that she would like to cater his event at no charge.
Every year since then, the Blue Rooster Team, led by Mary and Steve, has catered this special event. "We asked our team to pitch in to make this happen, and every year has been better than the last." Many of the servers at the event are young Blue Rooster team members; volunteering their time. They all agree that there was quite an impact this special place and the Christmas spirit has had on them. Mary has fostered the team spirit, "It is essential for us all to work on this party together. Everyone has something to offer, and when we all work together for the common goal. We make our own Christmas magic for the kids of Broyhill."
It is with the same spirit of teamwork, that the folks at the Blue Rooster strive this year to be not only the caterers; but also the gifters (with some help from Santa of course)
Please donate today! Every dollar gets us closer to our goal of raising $10,000, and 100% of all donations will go to this event.
