WHEELERSBURG — As part of its ongoing support of local causes, Patter Fam Sauces will once again help raise awareness and help those battling breast cancer throughout the month of October — National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Throughout the month Patter Fam Sauces will donate $1 of every bottle of Bourbon Barrel Hot Sauce to help end breast cancer.

Patter Fam’s Bourbon Barrel Hot Sauce is a limited edition hot sauce with a total of only 1,100 bottles manufactured. Aged in a bourbon barrel for six months, each bottle is numbered, hand dipped in wax and autographed by the producer.

The sauce will be available online at and at various events throughout the region. See the website and Facebook for locations.

In addition, Bottle No. 1,000 has been specially dipped in PINK wax and will be auctioned off throughout the month on the company’s Facebook page.

Go to that page and outbid the last bidder to get this special bottle of hot sauce. One hundred percent of the proceeds of that auctioned bottle will be donated. Please don’t wait till the end of the month to bid. Help help others that battle this disease.

Patter Fam Sauces is located in Wheelersburg and products can be purchased online at or at many fine retail outlets. They offer hand-crafted, all natural sauces, marinades and glazes.

Patter Fam Sauces began in the kitchen of a smalltown pastor named Sam Peters and his wife Joyce. They had a passion for great sauces that couldn’t be found anywhere else.

They’ve been making sauce, salsas and seasonings for a long time. Together they are constantly creating new recipes to accompany great food. With encouragement from friends and family, and divine intervention the company was founded in 2009.

They’re always asked where the name came from — it came from a 2 year old boy in their church that called him “Patter Fam” instead of Pastor Sam. Soon it became a nickname.

Patter Fam says, “Our goal is to create sauces and seasonings with layers of flavor that enhance the natural goodness of food. We are meticulous about the flavor of our food. We will never sacrifice flavor for the sake of gimmicks. If we won’t eat it, you won’t see it.”
