Turkeys For Linda started in November 2010. My best friend, Linda died of lung cancer at a very young age. She had never smoked before and she had a love for smokers and smoked food. Every Thanksgiving we would give her and her family a smoked turkey.
In 2010, we started this cause to promote awareness about lung cancer. The week of Thanksgiving my husband and I smoke turkeys and all proceeds go to the non profit of choice. We are not asking for a donation, we are asking you to purchase a fully cooked Thanksgiving turkey for the Holiday from us. In 2010, we raised $650 and in 2011 we raised over $750. In 2012, we raised $2950 all supporting the American Lung Assocation.
Stay Tuned for more information about Turkeys for Linda 2013. We are thinking ribs in July!! What do you think? If you have a special request for a particular event or any particular smoked foods please let us know. This years goals exceeded our expectations and so far 2013 goals have not been set.
We look forward to making your 2013 holiday special while creating awareness about lung cancer and helping fight this horrible disease.
