HALEYVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Northwest Alabama business is celebrating 50 years serving up good homestyle cooking.

Guthrie’s Golden Fried Chicken Fingers got its start in Haleyville, and through the years opened a number of franchise restaurants across the Southeast.

To celebrate, there will be a huge birthday party Friday, July 31 in downtown Haleyville.

A special ceremony will be held at 3 p.m., with guests including Governor Robert Bentley, Congressman Robert Aderholt and Mayor Ken Sunseri.

Internationally known Gospel music singer and recording artist Karen Wheaton will be on hand to sing "Happy Birthday." 

A water slide will also be available for you and your family to have a slip-sliding good time.

And what's a birthday party without gifts? But this time around, the presents could be for you.

Starting at 10 a.m., you can enjoy a plate or box of Guthrie's with a large drink and extra sauce for just $5, tax included.

Keep your receipt handy, because at 3 p.m., there will be a drawing for $1,000 cash. If you purchase a meal between 3 and 9 p.m., you will be eligible for a second drawing for an additional $1,000.

You must be present at both drawings in order to win. 

In one of the boxes sold on Friday, there will be a certificate for free food for a year for one person.

Invite your family and friends - and bring your lawn chairs - it is going to be a cluckin' great birthday party celebrating Guthrie's 50th anniversary.
