Hooters hosts fundraiser for local man who needs procedure after losing over 600 pounds

Hooters on Saturday will host a fundraiser for Dewayne Flowers, the Columbus man who lost more than 600 pounds and needs a procedure to take care of the loose skin from his weight loss.

The event is noon to 3 p.m. and includes a car wash. Flowers, a professional body painter and photographer, will paint kids' faces and display his art for sale. Proceeds go toward Flowers' surgery fund.

The work he needs could cost over $25,000. He has no health insurance.
