Restaurants team up to promote Hospice

MARTHA K. SEAGLE, STAFF WRITER

Five Lincoln County Restaurants are teaming up with Hospice and Palliative Care of the Charlotte Region this month in honor of National Hospice Month in “Dining Out for Hospice.”

On designated days in November, the restaurants will donate 10 percent of their sales to area Hospice organizations.

Cricket Weston, Public Relations and Editorial Manager for the Charlotte Region, said that this year marks the first time that Lincoln County restaurants have participated in the event. Additionally, this year is the first time that the event has been held during National Hospice Month.

Dave Heavner, owner of the Home Place Restaurant on W. Highway 27, is participating on two days during the month. When asked why he is participating so heavily, Heavner said, “If you’ve ever used them, you’ll know.”

“Hospice providers are just wonderful people,” he continued. “They provide a lot of support for families when a death occurs.”

Rick Dudley of 36th Street Bakery and Café echoed Heavner’s comments. “We’ve linked up with them several times. It’s good for business to work with agencies like this.”

Other area restaurants participating are Hannah’s South BBQ, Fatz Café – also in Lincolnton, and Sports Page Food and Spirits in Denver.

The dates and times for area restaurants’ participation follows:

  • Tuesday, Fatz Café, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

  • Thursday, The Home Place, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
