A Berryville eatery is rallying support for a local family that is coping with the tragic loss of two children. The two boys, Braydon and Landon, were the sons of husband and wife James C. Jenkins and Shannon Berg. The children lost their lives in a house fire that occurred on Summit Ave in Winchester on the morning of August 23. James Jenkins suffered severe burns to his hands in his effort to rescue the children, but was unable to save them from the terrible fire.
Locals are banding together to help the family because James (Jamie) has deep ties to Clarke County. He was raised in Berryville and went to Clarke County schools where he also participated in local agricultural organizations. Hope Cather who operates the Valley Bistro said, “Our staff and owners were blessed to watch Jamie grow up here in Clarke County and we would like to show him how much we still care.”
So, in an effort to help Jamie and his wife, The Valley Bistro is holding a fundraiser Tuesday to support the family. “God took two beautiful little boys and we would like to help their parents in their time of need.”
The Bistro is typically closed on Tuesdays, but this week they will open their doors from 5:00 PM till 9:30 PM to offer Homemade Spaghetti & Meatball Dinners with salad and bread for $12.50, eat-in or carryout.
“The staff will be volunteering their time and the Bistro is donating the food so all of the funds raised will go directly to the family.” Hope said.
