 Inland Seafood and Simply Fresh Seafood are teaming up for An Evening for Paul Lyons on July 31st at The Chef’s Academy in Morrisville NC. The event runs for 6:30 to 9:00   The purpose of this event is to raise money to help retire the medical bills for one of our drivers and friend, Paul Lyons.    After years of complaining about headaches Paul went to the hospital with symptoms similar to a Stroke. It was quickly discovered that in fact Paul had Stage 4 Brain Cancer in the left side of his head.  Within a week the surgeons at Duke Hospital removed 98% of the tumor and with the help of Chemotherapy and Radiation Treatments the Cancer has not spread and Paul is back to work on light duty. While we are all glad to see Paul back on his routes the Lyons family is facing a very large debt for the surgery, hospital stay and therapies that his insurance did not cover.  Here is where we need your help. On July 31st Inland Seafood and Simply Fresh are going to be holding a dinner for the Lyons family. There will be music by Steve Humbart.  Wine donated by two local distributors, Mutual and.  Topo Distillery of Chapel Hill will have a table and I am sure Estoban has something really nice figured out to serve.  ALL proceeds raised will go directly to the family to help pay medical bills. As for the food, we are planning on having several stations serving farm to table meat and fresh seafood.  We have donations from Brasstown Beef in   and Beeler’s All Natural Pork from Iowa.  Lamb is being donated by Craig Rogers of Border Springs lamb.  There will charcutier, cheeses and much more. And last but not least some of the finest restaurants, resorts and country clubs have pitched in for items for a Silent Auction and door prices.  So far we have up for auction: Dinner for 4 at Carolina Crossroads Restaurant at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill NC A catered lunch prepared by Executive Chef David Gaydeski at the Governor’s Mansion in Raleigh NC One round of Golf for up to 4 people at Pinewood’s Country Club in Asheboro NC A Chef’s Table for up to 10 guests at Dean’s in Cary NC A tour of Topo Distillery in Chapel Hill NC And MORE TO COME!!!!   If you are interested in attending the tickets are $75 a person and you can purchase them at the time of the event or by going to evenbrite and follow the prompts   This a great chance to help a family in need and to have some great food prepared by a highly trained culinary crew that we have assembled.
