Miracle Hill, Daddy Joe’s team up for benefit lunch

Daddy Joe’s Beach House BBQ and Grill will be open Sunday, Sept. 10, as a fundraiser for Miracle Hill Rescue Mission in Cherokee County.

Miracle Hill is a nonprofit ministry which helps provide for the hurting and homeless. All proceeds from the barbecue buffet will help support the local homeless shelter’s mission.

A barbecue buffet featuring chopped pork barbecue, Calabash chicken, baked beans, hush puppies, coleslaw and tea will be served. Several local churches will have desserts available.

The serving line starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 1:30 p.m. at Daddy Joe’s BBQ.

Cost is $12 for adults and $6 for children. People are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance by calling Miracle Hill Rescue Mission at 488-0376. Tickets will also be available at the door.

“Normally, Daddy Joe’s is closed on Sunday,” director Andy Cooper said. “But Shag Stepp has graciously agreed again this year to help us in this charitable effort by opening his doors on Sunday, Sept. 10, and basically giving us his profits for the day. We appreciate his hospitality and support and trust that his generosity will be matched by those looking for a place to eat after church on that day.”

Advisory board members, volunteers and staff of the mission will serve as wait staff on Sept. 10. All tips will be used to benefit the mission.

Miracle Hill Rescue Mission-Cherokee County opened its doors in November of 2000. It is a 44-bed shelter providing 24 beds for women and children and 20 beds for men.

During the cold weather months, 20 overflow beds are available to prove for additional homeless who otherwise would have no other choice than to sleep on the street.

More than 200 different men, women and children have been cared for by Miracle Hill Ministries during the first six months of 2017. And, over 1,000 bed nights were provided in the past month.
