Westport Restaurants Support Holiday Wish Family This Sunday
Can't ask for an easier way to support Haley Curran and her family than by simply going out to eat in Westport this Sunday.
After hearing Haley's story on Fun 107, the owners at Lafrance Hospitality decided to donate 10% of the sales at Ten Cousins, Bittersweet Farm, and The Galley Grill this Sunday to the family of one of their Hampton Inn Employees. Haley Curran, 25-years-old, works at the front desk at the hotel in Westport. Her mother passed away this summer, leaving her the responsibility of taking care of her 19 year old brother, who is developmentally disabled, along with her own two children. Haley's 20-year-old sister and her 7 month old baby also live with Haley.
After Charlie Fellows at Lafrance Hospitality heard of the struggle for his employee, he knew the company had to somehow help. Fellows says he knew of the recent death of Haley's mother, but didn't know the extent of the other challenges she faces.
Employees at the three Lafrance owned restaurants are hoping for a big turnout on Sunday to help ease the financial burden that Haley and her family are facing. "I wish I had 10 Haleys working for us," said Fellows.
