Lola’s Fundraiser supports Charleston small business following devastating fire

A devastating fire on March 18 has left a family of eight children and their parents homeless in Charleston, West Virginia. The Backus family is now trying to rebuild their lives after losing everything in the fire.

Corey Austin, a manager at Lola’s on Bridge Road, has known the Backus family for years. He expressed his love for the family and their children, describing them as awesome. In an effort to help the family during this difficult time, Lola’s has decided to donate all proceeds from Tuesday evening to the Backus family.

The restaurant will continue to accept donations for the Backus family throughout the week. All sales from Tuesday evening, including in-house dining and to-go orders, will go directly to the family. This generous gesture by Lola’s is a way to support the family as they work to recover from the fire.

The community is coming together to support the Backus family in their time of need. The Backus family owns Liberty Roe Children’s Clothier and Toy Co. in the South Hills area, and they are grateful for the outpouring of support and generosity from Lola’s and others in the community. This act of kindness by Lola’s is just one example of how Charleston community members are coming together during times of crisis to show compassion and support for those in need.
