Unfortunately, due to state law, she is not covered under her wife's health insurance. If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Sarah, know she is one of the kindest and most giving souls in Pensacola, and we are lucky to have her here!

On Sunday, December 21st, Jeffrey Knott will be giving 50% of his tips to help with her rising medical costs. Old Hickory will be giving 50% of sales to her treatment fund, as well. We encourage all other service industry professionals to take part at their own establishments, as well.
