Celebration For Butch White



Many walking horse fans, exhibitors, and trainers will recognize Butch White, either as the former protege of road horse exhibitor Pete Yokely, as a farrier who worked throughout middle Tennessee and north Alabama, or as the present day proprietor of Pulaski's Hickory House Restaurant.  Butch is battling bone cancer and has a bone marrow transplant scheduled for November.  To help alleviate some of the associated costs, many of Butch's friends in Giles county are hosting a "Celebration for Butch White" to be held at Pulaski's Recreation Center on September 27th from 4pm to 7pm.

The event will feature a menu of hamburgers and hot dogs, several live bands for entertainment, and an opportunity to say "Thanks!" to Butch for all the civic contributions that he has made to benefit local organizations and individuals.  Tickets are $10 minimum for adults, $5 for children and may be purchased at the event or can be ordered by contacting Judy Pruett, First National Bank, PO Box 289, Pulaski, Tn, 38478 (telephone 931-424-2105).  Those not able to attend, but wishing to recognize Butch, can send contributions, payable to the "Butch White Benefit" to that address.
