Dine out for cancer victim

By June 27, 2014

The Purple Place Bar & Grill in El Dorado Hills will host a fundraiser for Deborah Hogue Howes, who is currently undergoing treatment for cervical cancer. She is an El Dorado Hills mom of two young girls at Lakeview Elementary School and a son at Oak Ridge High School.

Howes was diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer stage 4b. Traditional medicine has told her there is no cure. Alternative medicine has told her there is hope. For her children’s sake, she has faith that she can beat this disease through natural non-toxic approaches; however, traditional medical insurance does not cover this type of treatment. She recently completed her treatment in Nevada and is now home to continue with the daily requirements of this intense treatment.

Dining at the Purple Place from 3 p.m. yo close on Tuesday, July 1, and the restaurant will generously donate 20 percent of all proceeds, including alcohol and merchandise, directly to Howes — such a simple way to help someone in the community in a time of need. And, as a bonus, you get to take a night off from the kitchen.
