By Lauren Bolden, Owner, Pie Bar
A huge part of being a member of the Downtown Woodstock Community is getting to know and love your neighbors. We are so fortunate to spend our days working with and next to some of the best people out there.
Cody and I met Jonathan Chambers a few years ago when we decided to open Pie Bar in Downtown Woodstock. He works for the Cherokee County Economic Development Office and has a passion for entrepreneurship and small businesses. Over the course of several years, Jonathan has become a mentor and a friend.
A few weeks ago, Jonathan shared that his wife, Allie, was diagnosed with cancer for the second time, this time Stage 4 Breast Cancer. The cost for Allie's treatment is $75,000.
Sometimes the worst things happen to the best people, and all we can do as a community is offer to help in whatever way we can. As a small business that serves pie, our best give is to sell pie and donate the proceeds to the Chambers Family: Jonathan, Allie, and their three little girls.
Here is how we are going to do that:
Starting on, Wednesday, May 29th, until Wednesday, June 19th, we are taking orders for a special Chambers Family Pie -- Traditional Buttermilk Pie. This pie is smooth and creamy and is topped with Georgia Grown pecans. We do not generally offer this flavor at the shop!
This pie will only be available for pick up at Pie Bar in Downtown Woodstock on Friday, June 21st, 2019, from 11am - 9pm, to coincide with the "Cherokee Gives A___" event on The Elm Street Green.
Each pie will be $35 and the proceeds will be donated to the Chambers Family.
You get a pie, they get a donation that helps fund Allie's $75,000 treatment!
