Summer nights are calling, and Smokin' Coop BBQ Pit in Belvidere has got the perfect way to answer! Every Wednesday this summer, they're throwing a cruise night party that's all about good eats, good tunes, and supporting a great cause.

For those that don't know, every Wednesday night is Cruise Night at Smokin' Coop BBQ Pit in Belvidere featuring yummy food, cool cars, music, and more, and it's always a great way to spend a summer evening.

BUT, the one thing that is even better than the food at Smokin' Coop's Cruise Night is the fact that they sell sweet treats and raffle tickets to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!

Each year Smokin' Coop comes to present a check during our Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon..

And every season Smokin' Coop has the same goal; to raise even more money for kids and families fighting cancer at St. Jude.

That's where you and I come in.

Help Smokin' Coop BBQ Pit Raise Money for St. Jude

So, here's the plan; please mark your calendars and clear you Wednesdays from 4 to 6:30 p.m. for some smokin' good times at Smokin' Coop this summer, AND don't forget your cash!

Smokin' Coop staff will be selling 50/50 raffle tickets, Klondike bars for just a buck, and root beer floats and then donating all the proceeds to St. Jude.

Honestly, it's hard for me to decide what I love more; Smokin' Coop's food or their kind, St. Jude-loving hearts!

Either way, let's turn up the summer fun and help Smokin' Coop make a real difference for amazing St. Jude families this summer!
