On Sunday, January 29th at 4:00 p.m. a group of restaurant owners are hosting a Spaghetti Dinner at Spamps to benefit Janie Carbo. Carbo was born in 2004 with a rare genetic disorder called MIDAS syndrome (Microphthalmia, Dermal Apalsia, Sclerocornea).
This syndrome only affects females and left Janie blind at birth. Her left eye is under developed which requires her to wear a glass eye. The major expense not covered by insurance is her glass eye. Its considered “cosmetic” even though she needs it to prevent her face from caving in as she grows. The money we raise helps the family get through this without financial issues associated with her illness and adding to their stress. This disorder is so rare Janie was the first case at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
The participating restaurateurs; Marcie from Spamps, Andrew from Totaro’s, Brian from The StoneRose, Kim from Gypsy Saloon and Robin from Guppy’s Good Times, will divide the restaurant among themselves and be responsible for serving in their section.
Tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased at Spamps and Guppy’s Good Times. The restaurant owners are also having an informal contest to get the most reservations for their section and the amount of tips they collect and donate as well.
