Destin, Fla. (September 9, 2016) – Brotula’s Seafood House & Steamer and Jackacudas Seafood + Sushi in Destin invite the community, loyal patrons and guests to the Pink Party+ Sushi in Destin invite the community, loyal patrons and guests to the Pink Party. 100% of the proceeds from the evening will benefit Carrie Bair, a tenured employee and pivotal part of the of Jackacudas family recently diagnosed with stage 1 Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The event will take place on Thursday, October 27, 2016, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Jackacudas located in the heart of HarborWalk Village.

The mother of two has a degree in music education, but chose to work in the service industry in order to be at home during the day with her 6-year-old son Bryce. Bryce was born with Coffin Lowry Syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes severe mental problems sometimes associated with irregularities of growth, cardiac abnormalities, kyphoscoliosis, as well as auditory and visual defects. Carrie and her husband Steven, a contractor in the Air Force, tag-team childcare with Steven working during the day and Carrie at night.

Bair discovered a lump in her left breast two years ago prior to having her youngest child Liam. Although her Obstetrician at the time told her the lump was nothing to be concerned about, Bair noticed at the beginning of this year that the lump had grown increasingly larger. Seeking a second opinion, the 34-year-old mother made an appointment with her primary care physician who voiced immediate alarm by the size of the mass. In the following days her physician ordered an ultrasound for Bair, which revealed a tumor. A biopsy was scheduled, but before the results could come back Bair had complications and underwent surgery for a partial mastectomy which removed the tumor and part of her breast tissue. A fighter in the truest sense of the word, Bair continued to work days after her partial mastectomy and throughout her five weeks of radiation.

Come to Brotula’s Seafood House & Steamer and Jackacudas Seafood to have a great evening.
