Pictured from left are, Whistle-Stop Bistro owner and operators David Smith and Edward Gray as they present a check for more than $1,000 to Dr. Larry Lewis and his wife Denise Lewis on behalf of McAlester’s Mercy Clinic. The check is the culmination of a six-week Benefit Battle between the Whistle-Stop Bistro and Roseanna’s Italian Food in Krebs. Both Restaurants chose local charities to support and asked customers to donate what they could. The final tally had the Bistro just ahead of Roseanna’s. Mercy Clinic is a free, non-profit clinic that is open Wednesdays from 4 to 7 p.m.
