Hattiesburg restaurants raise money for pediatric cancer research

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Some Hattiesburg restaurants are helping raise money for pediatric cancer research and treatment.

The Hub City restaurants in Ain't Life Grand Investments donated part of Wednesday's proceeds to a children's hospital in Alabama as part of Project Team Taylor.

It's named for Taylor Rayburn, the daughter of Allison and Cliff Rayburn, owners of Mugshots Grill and Bar in Tuscaloosa.

Taylor was diagnosed with cancer last year, but now she's cancer-free.

Mugshots, Glory Bound Gyro Co. and Topher's Rock 'N Roll Grill participated.

"Taylor had a form of cancer, they had surgery last year, and whenever she had surgery, we had a give back day, company-wide, in her honor and then, we're doing it again this year, as well," said Will Taylor, president of operations and founder of Glory Bound Gyro Co.

More than 20 restaurants in Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama joined in the effort.
