Here's an update on Ashley Pruneau, the MANA Food Bar line cook who was brutally attacked in her home by a stranger in early July.
If you recall, the assailant beat her around the head so badly with a hammer that she required emergency surgery. She is set to have another one on Sept. 13. Add to that the mounting hospital bills, and she's in dire need of some assistance.
There have been three generous fundraisers—which took place at Darkroom, Double Door and Letizia's Fiore over the summer—that in total raised more than $26,000. This money will help Pruneau get back on her feet after the second surgery.
"She has a great attitude and is ready to move on with her life," a source close to Pruneau told 312DD.
We wish her a speedy recovery!
