Sarah Elizabeth Goree Memorial Gift to Children holds annual fundraiser


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Sarah Elizabeth Goree Memorial Gift to Children 10th annual Boston butt and rib sale is taking place at Lowes on the Circle.

The fundraiser started ten years ago after a Dothan student, Sarah Goree lost her life in a car accident on Westgate Parkway.

The family came up with this idea as a way to remember Sarah as well as help other children.

The first year we had it across the street at Room Store and my brother knew my son, Seth and I would always experiment with smoking and grilling, so we figured why not do some kinda cook. That’s how that started,” Coordinator and Father Bill Goree said.

Bill says the sale is going well and they are expected to sell out earlier than Saturday. Proceeds will go to the Southeast Alabama Advocacy Center.
