February's Lunch and Learn at Johnny Mitchells Smokehouse in Euharlee—"Live, Love and Drum Corps"— is being held in an effort to raise money for a local young trumpet player who has been accepted into one of the most prestigious drum and bugle corps in America, but will miss his opportunity if he doesn't take it this year due to the age limit.

Being accepted into the Phantom Regiment was a huge triumph for Edwin Cantano, and now he is working to raise the money to get himself there, according to the press release. 

Set for Feb. 12, at 11:30 a.m., fundraiser participants will dine and get an introduction and brief history of the Drum Corps, the competition circuit and the Phantom Regiment, in particular, which is one of the best Drum and Bugle Corps in America based out of Rockford, IL.

Tickets are $15 and include a BBQ pork or chicken sandwich, chips and a drink, and the talk with live demonstrations and video clips. A portion of all ticket sales will go towards making Cantano’s dreams a reality.

Johnny Mitchells Smokehouse at 100 Covered Bridge Road in Euharlee recently was awarded Best Small Business by the Cartersville-Bartow County Chamber of Commerce. Although the award-winning barbecue is what draws people in, it is the variety in steaks, seafood, wine, and vegan/vegetarian options that are all made with love that keep people coming back, the press release says.
