A local fundraiser tonight at an area restaurant will help Mt. Juliet Big Brothers replenish dwindling funds.
If you stop by and eat at Courtney's Restaurant on north Mt. Juliet Road between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday, a portion of the sales goes directly to Big Brothers of Mt. Juliet. Big Brother's President Sherrie Bilbry said money is lean just before their annual Mother's Toy Store and food basket giveaway. So lean, their agency phone was disconnected last week because the bill could not be paid. It's an irony, said Bilbrey, because the Big Brother's main goal is to pay help pay the phone and electric bills of local needy. She urges everyone to eat at Courtney's tonight.
