Okay, DTMers, its time to band together for a good cause. On Thursday, August 30 from 6 to 9pm, the folks at Bella Boutique (not to be confused with Bella in Belmont) are throwing a party with live music, food, and wine to raise money for owner Thom Dobbins, who is battling pancreatic cancer. There are also having a silent auction and are still looking for items to auction off.
“I am not sure if you have personally met Thom but he is a wonderful man,” hairstylist Jessiah Mansfield tells the DTM. “We have had so many people ready to donate some really awesome things so there is sure to be something for everyone to bid on.”
If you would like to donate please contact the Boutique at 434-244-8466 or email JessicaLindsay85@gmail.com or Jmnsfld9@aol.com.
