Soul Flavor Kitchen and Bar, located at 716 North Lake Park Blvd. #3 in Carolina Beach, is asking you to come out on Saturday to honor Howell’s heroic actions.

The restaurant says all proceeds from all sales from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. will go to the Howell family.

“Hopefully this small gesture of support might lead us to a meaningful dialog so a tragedy like this does not occur again,” the restaurant told WWAY.
