What Inspires You?

What inspires you?

For me, it’s seeing people come out in droves to help us achieve our mission, like they did at Fat Daddy’s Bar & Grill in Raleigh on Tuesday night. It’s spending every day in the trenches with people like my friend Katie, who organized the event and believes with all of her heart, like I do, that our dream is within reach. But more than anything, it’s watching my sister Taylor. Taylor makes the ordinary amazing. She is the fuel for my fire; my laughter and my tears; my heart and soul.

Click here to read a beautiful article about why Taylor’s never-give-up attitude has sparked a huge effort to find a cure for the disease that threatens to take her life. Thanks so much to Mary Kornegay for telling the story so well.
Taylor – we’re right here with you, sweetie. We’re sticking in the trenches till this disease doesn’t have a leg left to stand on.

Fat Daddy’s Charity Night

By Laura Edwards

Just a reminder that Fat Daddy’s Bar & Grill of Raleigh, NC will host a charity night to benefit Taylor’s Tale on Tuesday, Nov. 17 from 5-11 p.m. If you live in the Triangle area and can make it out to Fat Daddy’s that evening, you’ll be supporting the three research projects Taylor’s Tale helped make possible for 2009-2010. Just mention Taylor’s Tale when you place your order, and the restaurant will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from your purchase to our organization.

Fat Daddy’s is a local favorite in the Crabtree Valley area of Raleigh, located at 6201 Glenwood Ave. The restaurant offers everything from custom-built burgers to pool tables and a huge beer selection.
