Many of you know long-time Osteria IL Centro employee, Laura Clowers. She has been part of the OIC team for more than a decade.

Recently, Laura's husband, Curtis, was diagnosed with stage four metastatic cancer. Between treatment and children, there is much to consider, including Laura and Curtis' three children: Lane - 12, Evelyn - 5, and Jolene - 3.

Several of OIC's regular customers have inquired on how they can help. A GoFundMe fundraiser page with the hashtag #CrushItClowers has been created to help support the Clowers family if you would like to donate.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Clowers family during this difficult time.
