COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The local American Cancer Society received a check Tuesday worth more than $5,000.
That's 25 percent of the proceeds received from the Grubbin' to Give Fundraiser that was held back in February.
Local restaurant owner and Chef Mark Jones was on hand to present the check to the Muscogee and Harris County American Cancer Society.
He says it's always good to give back.
"It's great to see the support we get from the community. It's great to see our customers come out and support it. We always enjoy raising money for charity especially something that's as close to my heart as this one is. My mother was lost to cancer also I have a best friend with it," Mark Jones said.
This is the first time Grubbin' to Give has presented a check to the American Cancer Society, but they've presented checks to other causes previously.
