We Care Williamson County is proud to host the 9th Annual Crawfish Boil, benefitting High Hopes and The Arc. 

The Crawfish Boil will be held from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 30 at Tony's Eat & Drink in Cool Springs, rain or shine. 

Besides all you can eat crawfish, the event will have live music, live and silent auctions and local craft vendors. $30 tickets are on sale now at Tonyseatanddrink.com.

All proceeds will be donated to two Franklin organizations: High Hopes Scholarship fund and The Arc.

'We'd love to see the Franklin community come together to support these great local organizations who do great work in the community," says the release from Tony's. 

We Care Williamson County says it was founded "out of deep care for our 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," reads a release. "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. After years of facilitating other organizations, many of the original volunteers have banded together to create We Care Williamson County, a 501c3 non-profit whose sole purpose is to assist those in need in our community.

"These volunteers have worked tirelessly together for years to assist fellow non-profits and families needing assistance and would like to thank you for your continued support."
