FAYETTEVILLE - A fundraiser is being held at Bob Evans restaurant in Fayetteville this weekend to help pay for a local's medical bills.

Customers at Bob Evans restaurant in Fayetteville this Saturday can donate a portion of their sales to the fundraiser for Ricky, a customer with Down Syndrome who recently had surgery for kidney cancer.

Employees said Ricky has been coming to the restaurant since it opened, and they hope the fundraiser will help his family financially. "It's something that we'd like to see raise a lot of money to help them out because they've been so near and dear to us," said Assistant Manager Niki Willis.

The fundraiser is this Saturday from 7 am to 9 pm. Customers can ask for a flier to allow 15 percent of their sales to be donated.
