If you eat at certain restaurants in New Hanover, Pender and Onslow counties Saturday night, you'll be helping people with a potentially deadly brain disorder.
The first-ever Kitchens That Care project will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Participating restaurants will give a portion of their proceeds to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
Tammie Parris is the brainchild behind the Kitchens that Care Project.
Tammie had a brain aneurysm two years ago. Hers ruptured, and she almost died. She has since convinced Governor Pat McCrory to declare September Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month.
Her mission now is to help fund the foundation that provides education, awareness, and research on the brain disorder. An estimated 6 million people in the United States have an unruptured brain aneurysm, or 1 in 50 people.
Local restaurants participating in the Kitchens That Care project are:
Wilmington: Catch, K-38 Baja Grill, Peppercorn Spirits, PT'sGrill (Mayfaire), Elizabeth Pizza, On the Border
Carolina Beach: Michael's Seafood
Kure Beach: Big Daddy's
Sneads Ferry: Denoia's
Surf City: Batson's Galley, Max's Pizza, Cheri's, Long Island Pizza, Quartermasters, The Bistro
