11% on 11/11: A Day for Henry Thome

On Wednesday Nov. 11, shop and spend for a good cause: the medical bills of 14-month-old Ashevillean Henry Thome, born with a rare genetic condition that causes severe immune deficiencies and anemia. Henry's condition requires expensive procedures at Duke Children's Hospital, and while his family has insurance, it won't pay for massive and mounting bills.

To help the Thome family, area businesses all over town are donating 11 percent of their profits on Nov. 11 to the Thomes. Participating businesses range from frame shops to spas to computer repair, so check out the list below and plan your haircuts, pedicures and brunches accordingly!

There's also a Sunday Nov. 8 benefit pancake brunch at Laurey's Catering on Biltmore Ave., 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Breakfast/brunch (killer Laurey's pancakes, coffee and juice) is $10 and kids are free.

Learn more about Henry and his 11% on 11/11 event here. Donate directly here.
