'Low Country Boil' to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Hawkins County

ROGERSVILLE — The historic Amis Mill Eatery will host a "Low Country Boil Date Night" Saturday to raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club of Hawkins County.

The "Leadership Hawkins" class of 2013-2014 is organizing the second annual event.

Organizers said the event was such a huge hit last year that the class had no hesitation in keeping it going.

The "Boil" begins at 6 p.m. and will includes live entertainment from Ivy Road Band and a number of items for silent auction.
Amis Mill Eatery owner Jake Jacobs will serve as chef for the event.

"A low country boil is a traditional thing where you throw everything in the pot and boil it in Cajun spices," Jacobs said. "We're going to have shrimp, crawfish, corn on the cob, new potatoes, mushrooms, sausage, bell peppers, onions — all in same pot. Then we'll serve it on individual on an old wooden Coke crate, beach style. Traditionally you just pour it on the table, but it works better here if we serve it individually."

Jacobs added, "We'll also have a variety of homemade desserts, so come hungry because it's all you can eat."
Tickets are $25 per person.

Amis Mill Eatery is located at 127 W. Bear Hollow Road about two miles south of Rogersville near the Burem Road intersection.

The Boys and Girls Club located on W. Main Street in Rogersville serves around 80 children each day ranging in age from 6 to 17.

The club provides a safe environment for our children to do homework, play, engage in group activities and even socialize.

The Boys and Girls club takes seriously the influence these activities and teamwork exercises can have on molding our next generation. The club operates solely on community donations and grants.
