A hot dog and hamburger lunch will be held in the courtyard at White Oak of Tryon on Friday, Aug. 17 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Mystery “Celebrity Cookers” will be on hand to cook hamburgers and hot dogs and greet the public.
A plate consists of hamburger or hot dog with condiments, as well as potato chips, cole slaw, baked beans, chili and a variety of homemade desserts. The lunch will be held on the patio just inside the rehab entrance, where you can pick up a lunch to go or enjoy it under the large tent.
All proceeds from the lunch will go to help pay medical bills for Lori Webster, full-time Restorative C.N.A. at White Oak of Tryon and part-time C.N.A. at St. Luke’s Hospital in Columbus. Webster has been diagnosed with Stage 3 melanoma and will have surgery as soon as it can be scheduled. Upon recovery from the surgery, she will begin chemotherapy treatments which will last for one year. Lori has been with White Oak for more than three years and at St. Luke’s since April of 2010.
Many White Oak residents have known Lori since she began working there three years ago and said they have grown very attached to her.
“She is so kind and caring to all of us and does so many extra things for us,” one resident said. “This shouldn’t be happening to her.”
