  • Oyster Roast - GA Smoke FODAC benefit

    Annual Charity Benefit Event in our midst! This is great fun and a worthy cause.

    Seventh Annual Georgia Smoke Oyster Roast Saturday November 3 at 6:30 p.m.

    Hello Everyone:

    Buy tickets now ($25 each; kids eat free and don't need a ticket) and join us for a fun evening Saturday, November 3 at 6:30 p.m. as we roast and serve a boatload of oysters delivered fresh from the gulf and east coast.

    The event will again be held at the Briarcliff Woods Beach Club field behind the tennis courts.

    Here's an easy ticket link to share: https://tinyurl.com/2018OysterRoast

    Over the years, you have helped us raise over $17,500 for FODAC, and we again will donate all proceeds to this fine nonprofit organization.

    FODAC's mission is to provide durable medical equipment (DME) such as wheelchairs and hospital beds at little or no cost to adults and children with injuries and disabilities. When you purchase your tickets, funds go directly to FODAC.

    Georgia Smoke's mission is to serve you perfectly-roasted gulf oysters, the best varieties of the freshest + coldest northeastern raw oysters, cooked-to-order lobsters ($25 ticket upcharge), as well as chicken and sausage gumbo. Kids of course are welcome and will eat free (chicken, pizza, etc. will be provided for kids.)

    We are also excited to announce that The Mudflapjacks will be playing the oyster roast again this year. Last year they were perfect. Even if you are a misanthrope and don't like oysters, lobsters, gumbo, and having fun with your life in general, it's worth at least coming down to the field just to hear them play.

    Thank you to our sponsors: Briarcliff Woods Beach ClubComplete Systems AutomationLenz, Inc., Georgia SmokeMcMahan Mortgage, All Exterminating, Mo's Pizza, and Kim + Carl Craig.

    Thank you to the team that will make this happen: Doug Bourgeois, Derek Butler, Carl Craig, Carl Davis, Mitch Dickerson, Dave Evans, David Rutland, Sam Shober, and Duncan Van Pelt.

    If you have any questions, please email me. Thank you all!
