Boston Butt Sale Fundraiser at Elizabethtown and Tarheel Fire Departments for Emma Melvin

The Elizabethtown and Tar Heel fire departments will be having a Boston Butt Sale on Saturday, Dec. 18 to benefit Emma Melvin. She is the daughter of firefighters Dustin and Caitlin Melvin who was diagnosed with severe idiopathic aplastic anemia in October of this year. The condition causes the immune system to destroy bone marrow resulting in numerous blood, platelet, and bone marrow transfusions.  

Presale tickets will be available until Dec. 10. The cost is $25 each, and pickup will be at both fire stations from 12 p.m.- 6 p.m. Donations will also be accepted and appreciated.

For more information or to order your ticket, call 910.862.4586 or 910.862.4075.
