Hurricane Irma Victims Opening Restaurant in Mooresville To Raise Money For New Life


For most families living in South Florida, Hurricane Irma meant flooding and property damage, but for some, it meant losing everything.

According to their website, Dawn McGill (an experienced chef), her fiancé, two children, and two cats abandoned their live-aboard sailboat in the Florida Keys and fled to her friend’s house in Mooresville just before the storm hit. Dawn immediately started using her culinary skills to work – baking pies, cakes, and other goodies out of her friend’s kitchen, and selling them through Facebook.

After the storm passed, they discovered that Hurricane Irma had completely destroyed their home, along with everything in it. Dawn and her family then decided to start over permanently here in North Carolina.

They’ve now opened a pop-up restaurant in Downtown Mooresville, where the whole family will work together to make enough to start their new life here in the Carolinas.

They will open their new pop-up restaurant for the first time tomorrow, October 13th at 7pm.

After tomorrow, their hours will be:

Sunday – Thursday: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Friday – Saturday: 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.
*Breakfast served daily starting at 7 a.m. until 11 a.m.
**Breakfast hours from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sundays.
