FDHS Butts and Wings Fundraiser for Camp Happy Days

Come out and help us raise money for Camp Happy Days at our 4th annual FDHS Beta Butts and Wings festival presented by Raising Canes!

FDHS Butts and Wings BBQ Festival

FDHS Butts and Wings BBQ Festival

As many of you may recall, I teach English and journalism at Fort Dorchester High School. Several years ago, Tricia Andrews brought the SCBA sanctioned event to the competition circuit in service to the community through the school’s BETA Club.

Mrs. Andrews has since moved home to Connecticut and Willie Dasinger, a former participant, has taken over the event. Both have done an amazing job bringing a new event to the circuit.

If you are in the area on November 17 or 18, we invite you to come join us for a great weekend of events. See the events planned below:
