Seven years ago Billy and Katie Butler started “Hit-It-A-Ton” as a way to raise food for the Bishop Sullivan Center pantries and community kitchen. The cost to obtain and distribute a ton of food is $250 and we provide almost two tons of food each day to the poor in our city.  When you help Billy and make a donation to  "Hit-It-A-Ton", you will receive autographed gear from Billy or his teammates.  And remember, your donation qualifies for the Missouri Pantry Tax Credit.  

Zarda Bar-B-Q is a great sponsor of Hit-It-A-Ton.  In 2013 all the profit from the Zarda Billy Bulter BBQ Sauce and the Billy Butler Ton of Beef Sandwich was donated to Bishop Sullivan Center and it amounted to over $32,000.  The sauce is currently available at the following fine stores: Price Chopper, HyVee, Country Mart, Sunfresh, Patricia's, and coming in March Walmart.  It can also be purchased online by Clicking Here.

Be sure to click on Billy's Locker where any donation also enrolls you in the Hit-It-A-Ton program.  The Locker contains autographed bats and balls from his teammates as well as some of Billy's game-used gear.
