Help Hattie’s Extend a Helping Hand

By Staff Report | Entertainment

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Hattie’s Restaurant will be reinstituting its popular “Hattie’s Helping Hands” dinners on Thursday evenings. This is a wonderful opportunity to do good for your community, while eating excellently.


“We are excited to re-implement these dinners at our downtown (45 Phila Street) restaurant,” states co-owner and chef Jasper Alexander, who notes that the first dinner will be on Thursday, October 10. Hattie's will donate 10 percent of all proceeds raised that evening to Jakes Help From Heaven Foundation (JHFH). No reservations are necessary.

Founded in 2011 by local family Brian and Heather Straughter, JHFH is a non-profit foundation dedicated to supporting individuals with multiple medical conditions and disabilities. The foundation is dedicated to the memory of Jake Straughter, their brother and son. 

“Countless challenges occur in caring for those who are medically fragile special needs individuals. Our goal is to assist children and their families affected by debilitating illnesses, such as neurological impairments, mitochondrial and genetic disorders and pediatric orthopedic problems,” Heather said.
