WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – The Cape Fear Mothers of Twins Club held a fundraiser 9 months ago and still hadn’t received their portion of the proceeds so they called the troubleshooters at WWAY.

On April 18th, the group held a fundraiser at the Highway 55 restaurant on Gordon Road.

A spokeswoman for the group says that close to 60 people attended the event, and that they were supposed to get $160 from Highway 55, but months went by without seeing a dime.

WWAY contacted the owner of Highway 55 who said that she had tried to mail the Cape Fear Mothers of Twins Club their check, but it was returned because she had been given the wrong address. She went on to say that she would hold the money for the group until someone came by her store to collect it.

Late Wednesday night the collection was finally made after WWAY was able to connect the two sides.

What MOT couldnt just call Hwy55 and ASK? Why cause such a ruckus over 160 bucks? Whiners.

I represent the Cape Fear Mother’s of Twins Club. I am sorry that you feel we owe the restaurant an apology. We made every effort to collect the funds promised to us for the past nine months. Between two of our members we called, went in person and were told repeatedly that a check was either not available or that it was mailed. We waited again, and when we contacted them again, we were told the same thing. All of our efforts were to no avail.
We are grateful to WWAY for helping us in this matter.

Couldn’t someone from this “group” had contacted the restaurant directly to attempt to obtain their check, rather than jumping the gun and having the TV station solve their problems for them? It sounds like the problem was no other than the “group’s” fault, since they had not even provided the correct address, and that the restaurant was completely willing to provide them with the check. I hope the restaurant sues the “group” for portraying them in such a negative way on TV.
