The Flying Biscuit Cafe in southeast Charlotte will hold a benefit for the American Cancer Society on Sunday in memory of Danielle Watson, who was slain while working at the restaurant last year.
The benefit will be one year to the day that Watson, 25, was stabbed to death while she was closing the restaurant late on a Friday night. A co-worker, Mark Anthony Cox, 22, was charged with two counts of murder -- including one of an unborn child -- and robbery. He remains in jail, awaiting trial.
Watson was two months pregnant at the time of her death.
Owners of the Flying Biscuit Cafe, at Stonecrest Shopping Center on Rea Road at Interstate 485, say they will donate all gross profits from business Sunday to the American Cancer Society. Restaurant hours Sunday are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We continue to mourn the loss of Danielle Watson,” said Will Bigham, a co-owner of the restaurant. “Our hope is to honor Danielle’s legacy and cherish her memory with a contribution to the American Cancer Society, an organization respected by Danielle.”
