At 8:00 pm on Friday, January 18, 2013, a fundraising event will be held at the Earhart’s Runway Grill located at the Lakeland Linder Airport, 3900 Don Emerson Drive in Lakeland, to aid Polk County Sheriff’s Detective Zulaika “Zoe” Vizcarrondo and her family.
Zoe fell seriously ill while 6 months pregnant several weeks ago. Her baby boy was born three months premature on December 20, 2012, as a result of complications from Zoe’s illness. Both she and her tiny son remain hospitalized. His name is Juliano.
Earhart's has graciously offered to donate 20% of all food proceeds all day Friday to Polk Sheriff’s Charities, Inc., for Zoe.
Additionally, the country duo “Dock Seven” will provide music on Friday evening beginning at 8:00 pm. To see more about this group that hails from Plant City, visit www.dock7music.com.
Please join us for a very worthy cause and a great evening!
