Ladies auxiliary for Jarrett American Legion Post will have breakfast fundraiser at O’Charley’s
SALISBURY — The Ladies Auxiliary of Harold B. Jarrett American Legion Post 342 is sponsoring a breakfast fundraiser Saturday at O’Charley’s restaurant, 123 N. Arlington St.
The $7 breakfast will be served from 8 to 10 a.m.
Proceeds will go toward buying playground equipment for special-needs students at Overton Elementary School and for projects the auxiliary supports at the W.G. “Bill” Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury.
Special guests at the breakfast will be first-shift employees of the Salisbury Police Department and Salisbury Fire Department, along with the Rowan County Detention Center of the Sheriff’s Office.
This is the second year for the auxiliary’s breakfast, which sold more than 200 tickets last year.
Catawba College and Rowan American Legion baseball coach Jim Gantt once again will be one of the servers at the breakfast, along with his assistant coaches.
Penny Sides, who is helping organize the breakfast, says some of the playground items the auxiliary already has purchased will be on display. People interested in attending can call Sides at 704-640-3555 to reserve tickets that they can pay for at the door.
Major sponsors for the breakfast include Lowe’s, which has donated at sandbox for the playground; the Ben Mynatt car dealership; and O’Charley’s.
“We have had generous donors,” Sides says.
