Diner plans fundraiser after 'show more skin' post

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - After a customer suggested that servers at a West Virginia barbecue restaurant needed to "show more skin," the owner became offended and decided to do something about it.

Owner Daniel McCawley of Atomic Grill in Morgantown is donating proceeds from potato skin sales this weekend to a West Virginia rape crisis center network.

McCawley says the anonymous post was made in an online review site and has since been deleted.

McCawley says the post "just kind of hit home." He has a wife, a 12-year-old daughter and five sisters.

He says proceeds from the sales Saturday through Monday will benefit the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information and Services, which has nine crisis centers statewide.
