Pig pickin' pulls in funds for baby girl who needs new heart


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Our community came together Saturday to pig out for a great cause.

Hannah Dombrowski is a baby girl who needs a new heart. She was born with a tumor on hers. Hannah's father is New Hanover County Sheriff's deputy David Dombrowski, who was involved in a fatal car accident on MLK Parkway back in January.

Poor Piggy's hosted the event and said part of their business model is to hold fundraisers for community members and organizations.

"We're Christians, and we believe in giving back to our community,” owner Ed Coulbourn said. “She's just a little girl that has a lot of people loving on her and praying for her. We just felt like it was a great opportunity to help a local family out."

Hannah is at Duke getting treatment and waiting for a transplant. The next fundraiser for Hannah’s heart is set for April 22 at Britt Motorsports. For more information on how you can help, visit
