On Wednesday, April 25, MELT, at 4105 Fourth Ave. South, will host Dine for a Cure, a fundraising effort in which local restaurants partner with the Young Supporters Board of the University of Alabama at Birmingham Comprehensive Cancer Center to raise money for cancer research at UAB.
MELT will donate 10 percent of all proceeds from 6 p.m. to close to the Cancer Center’s Brown Family Fund, named to honor a Young Supporters Board member and her family who have been affected by the disease. The fund provides educational materials, supplies and equipment to support patients and their families visiting the Patient and Family Resource Center at the UAB Cancer Center.
The Young Supporters Board was established in 2006 to introduce the next generation of Alabamians to the importance of cancer research and awareness. The board comprises up-and-coming professionals between the ages of 22 and 40, all of whom have been touched by cancer in some way.
