Clayton Rugby Announces 2nd Annual BBQ Fundraiser

CLAYTON, NC – The Clayton Rugby Football Club is excited to announce the date for the club’s 2nd Annual Barbecue Fundraiser. The Bootleggers have partnered, once again, with Deep River Brewing to host the event which is set to be held on Sunday August 23rd, 2015. The club chef’s will provide a full complement of offerings including pork barbecue, chicken, boiled potatoes, baked beans, cole slaw, and a roll.

The Bootleggers have quickly developed a strong reputation for putting out great food for travelling opponents and fans. The annual barbecue fundraiser is an opportunity for the club to share with the local community and the club’s extended family of friends. Clayton Rugby’s Head Chef, Philip “Paddy O” Davies will oversee the barbecue fundraiser.

“Last year’s barbecue was a huge success,” said Club President Ted Hardy. “This fundraiser is our big event for the year and raises much of the money needed to help cover club expenses for our Fall season.”

The 2014 event sold over 150 plates which helped the club not only raise funds for their season, but enabled the club to purchase supplies to construct a scrum sled for the Clayton Copperheads youth teams. The club has set a goal of selling 200 plates for 2015.

“Deep River has a great family-friendly environment and the food is amazing,” added Hardy.

The 2nd Annual Bootleggers Barbecue Fundraiser will be on Sunday August 23rd, 2015 at Deep River Brewing from 1pm-6pm. The cost per plate is $8. Hot dogs, chips, soda, and water will also be available for purchase separately. The club is also working on silent auction items to raise additional funds.
