WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Normally they compete for business, but this time, local restaurant owners came together to support one of their own.

They all worked to re-open Skippy's hot dogs to raise money for its owner, Mike Rothman, who doctors recently diagnosed with brain cancer.

Everyone is donating their time and all the money made this week will go toward Rothman’s medical bills.

“I would like to thank the community for supporting us in this effort,” said Vivian Joiner, who owns Sweet Potatoes restaurant in downtown Winston-Salem. “It shows it shows a lot. It gives meaning to where we live because we're all in this together.”

Skippy's is at 624 West Fourth St. in downtown Winston-Salem and will be open daily until next Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
