On Friday, Oct. 28 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., White Oak of Tryon will hold a cookout to benefit Janice Harris, CNA, who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
Harris has worked at White Oak since 2006 and works primarily in the short-term rehabilitation area.
Lunch plates will be available for sale, including hot dogs with or without homemade chili and onions, hamburgers or cheeseburgers with onion, lettuce and tomato, baked beans, coleslaw and potato salad. A wide variety of homemade dessert choices will be available for a small additional charge. Whole cakes and pies will also be for sale.
The White Oak staff and families of residents are providing everything for sale so Harris can receive all monies brought in that day.
In addition to the lunch plates, White Oak is selling Breast Cancer Awareness items, including “Kick the Tail Out of Breast Cancer” T-shirts, mini tote bags, baseball caps, can covers and pink rubber bracelets.
Every Wednesday and Friday during October, employees who dress down and/or wear pink will pay a small donation, which will be given to Harris.
