Jack Pirtle's is a Memphis institution and Cordell and Tawanda Pirtle are two of the most respected, generous, and well-loved Memphians since Boss Crump.
The Memphis Roast Club and friends will be honoring them Saturday, September 28 with a formal roast in the beautiful Memphis College of Art Callicott Auditorium in support of Youth Villages. As an added element of mischief, Mr. Pirtle's 69th birthday is just two days later and the entire event is a surprise from the Mrs. Pirtle and the Memphis Roast Club.
Food provided by (who else?) Pirtle's Chicken.
Event is 21+
Ticket price is per plate and all proceeds go to Youth Villages.
Beer and wine will be available by donation.
