Support for John, Ty and baby Dakota

Today (12/21) we received information that is both joyous and dismaying. One of our two lead chefs at The Curious Pig, John Childers, and Ty Bentley have welcomed a son into their lives, but unfortunately, medical complications required the birth to be induced prematurely, and Dakota Holland Childers was born last night at 24 weeks. He and Ty are in stable condition, but the road ahead will be very difficult for the Childers family.

John has been with The Curious Pig almost since the beginning and has played a huge role in the restaurant’s success. He and Ty are part of our family, and we want to help them in any way we can. We have established a GoFundMe page to help raise money for Ty, John and baby Dakota and we are reaching out to Giving Kitchen for further support.

It has been a difficult year, and the Childers family has to weather this holiday season with added difficulty. We ask you to help ease their burden and donate anything you feel comfortable sharing. We wish you all a safe and healthy holiday and we hope you can show your family you love them as much as we love ours! Thank you all!
