Weaverville restaurants hold events to benefit family of accident victim

Press release

Downtown Weaverville restaurants Blue Mountain Pizza, Maggie B’s Wine and Specialty Store and the Main Street Grill are raising money to benefit the family of Danielle Dixon, a waitress at Blue Mountain Pizza who was killed in an accident on I-26 on Sept. 26.

Blue Mountain Pizza will donate 100 percent of all proceeds from sales on Thursday, Oct. 17 to the family, and Maggie B’s will host a benefit on Friday Oct. 18, featuring free wine and a raffle for items including wine, design services and a chef-quality charbroil grill. The raffle will be active until the end of the month and the winner will be drawn on Friday, Nov. 1. Proceeds from the raffle, 15 percent of the evening’s sales and all other donations will go directly to Danielle’s family.

Both Main Street Grill and Blue Mountain Pizza are collecting money for the cause and Blue Mountain will match all donations collected during the month of October.

Dixon left behind her husband Justin, the head cook at Main Street Grill and their 4-year-old son, William. Justin has been unable to file for Social Security benefits due to the government shut down. Several other members of the downtown community are collecting donations to help the family cope with their loss.
