Crawfish Boil

Just as it did last year, We Care Williamson County will again host its annual Crawfish Boil Saturday to help raise funds for local families and organizations. 

We Care Williamson County, a local 501(c)3 organization, will hold its 10th annual Charity Crawfish Boil taking place Saturday from 12-5 p.m. in the parking lot at Tony's Eat & Drink, rain or shine.

Tony’s is located at 1000 Meridian Blvd., Suite 100, in Franklin.

Charity Crawfish Boil tickets are $35 per person, and price includes all-you-can-eat crawfish with all the fixings (corn, sausage, potatoes).  Tickets can be pre-purchased online at, or at the gate.

Along with the Louisiana-style Crawfish boil, there will be a silent auction, live signed sports jersey auction, and live music all day long. This will be a great day to enjoy the spring weather, eat some Cajun crawfish, and raise money for the community.

“This annual charity event has always been well attended and supported by our fabulous Williamson County residents through the years, and we sincerely appreciate all the support,” a spokesperson for the nonprofit said in a press release. “We look forward to hosting the best dang Charity Crawfish Boil in the county!”

All proceeds from the event will be used to support two local causes: the Refuge Center and local resident Jackie Kelley.

The Refuge Center exists to offer excellent, accessible and affordable mental and emotional health care services in support of a transformational impact on communities.  This Williamson County based organization values systemic health, affordability, excellence, Christ-centered faith, education and hope.

Last year, local resident and active community member Jackie Kelley suffered a near fatal injury in a vehicle accident, resulting in a three-month hospital stay with ongoing rehabilitation. Kelley has been a pillar of the charitable community in Franklin for years, and We Care wants to show its gratitude and thanks by supporting him through his recovery. 

We Care Williamson County was founded out of deep care for local Williamson County Community of families. What began as a charity event in 2013 in support of Mary’s Trail, a nonprofit founded in memoriam of Mary O’Connell, the crawfish boil was created to financially assist women battling breast cancer.

The event has since morphed into a successful annual fundraiser helping families or individuals fighting cancer or other health crises. The crawfish boil tradition draws many of the same volunteers and supporters year after year and has raised over $100,000 for families in need.
