Newk’s Cares Honors Late Co-founder Lori Newcomb During Awareness Month
Newk’s Cares is honoring the legacy of co-founder Lori Newcomb this September during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month with fundraising initiatives online and at the more than 100 Newk’s Eatery restaurants. Newk’s Cares is the philanthropic arm of Newk’s Eatery, the Jackson, Mississippi-based fast-casual restaurant chain. It was established in 2014, a year after Newcomb, an Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) board member and mother of three, was diagnosed with stage 3C ovarian cancer. She was the wife of Chris Newcomb, Newk’s Cares co-founder and Newk’s Eatery CEO. Supporters can join the fight against ovarian cancer this month by donating to OCRA when placing a dine-in, to-go, or curbside pickup order from Newk’s Eatery. Those who make an in-store donation will get a personalized teal ribbon certificate — the color teal symbolizes ovarian cancer — that will be displayed in that restaurant.
