Boston butts fundraiser set for Laurel Hill woman

Published: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 02:04 PM.

The Rev. Mike McVay, pastor of First Baptist Church said, "Katlyn is one of ours at Laurel Hill School and the church as well. She is having a life change. This procedure is going to change her life completely."

Katie recently had open heart surgery to install a heart pump as she awaits a new heart, McVay said. Katie and her family will need to stay in Jacksonville for at least three months while they wait for her transplant.

And every bit of financial support helps, which is why, Smith said, he'll even deliver the Boston butts to Crestview if someone can't make it to Laurel Hill.

"If I need to deliver a Boston butt to Crestview, or even a truckload of Boston butts to Crestview, call me and I'll bring them to you after they are cooked," he said. "We will cook them on the honor system if someone orders one. They are so good I'll sell them."

Other fundraisers, including a March 8 yard sale and late-spring Gospel sing at the church, are in the works.

If Boston butts, yard sales and gospel sings aren't your thing, you can make a donation through the church, McVay said.

Just make sure you designate the donation for the Katlyn Free Fund.
