SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KFTA) — A celebrity chef known for Southern cooking made a stop in Northwest Arkansas.
Paula Deen took part in a ‘meet and greet’ at Hank’s Fine Furniture earlier today.
It was a time for Deen to meet her fans, but also served as a fundraiser.
Guests had a chance to snag copy of Deen’s cookbook with proceeds benefiting Arkansas Children’s Northwest in Springdale.
“I polled the employees of Hank’s and said ‘Y’all pick which charity you want us to be a major supporter,” said Hank Browne, Hank’s owner. “Almost unanimously it was Children’s Hospital.”
Hank’s matched all proceeds raised today for the hospital and donated 10 percent of all furniture sales as well.
