Bites & Brew for Brooke will be an amazing afternoon bringing the Cave Creek community together to support local business owners, Brooke and Collin, and Baby Navy and lessen the burden of rising medical bills for this amazing family.
Brooke Dallas (Butler), owner of Big Earls Greasy Eats in Cave Creek, is an Arizona native, born and raised in Cave Creek where she still lives today. After 5 years of pouring her heart and soul into her job at Big Earls Greasy Eats, she finally saved enough to purchase Big Earls and become the proud new owner in January 2017!
Brooke was rushed to the hospital as her airway began closing on her. She was gasping for her life and doctors had to perform an emergency tracheotomy on this otherwise healthy and vibrant young lady. Brooke is almost 8 months pregnant and remains a resilient warrior as she is now on bed rest until her daughter Navy is born. Brooke’s admirable high spirit and go with the flow attitude through this challenging event remain unwavering. The next few months will be difficult for Brooke and her husband, Collin as they focus on her breathing and the health of their unborn daughter. She is restricted from working as she stays in bed with a breathing humidifier to focus on her healing and the health of her baby. She will be getting surgery 7 months following birth to remove the trach and expand her airways so she can breathe on her own.
Brooke has always had a passion for people, service and community. She loves her hometown of Cave Creek, its residents and visitors. Her family, friends, pets and community make up her entire world. Energetic, charismatic, loyal, hilarious, generous and selfless are just a few words to describe Brooke’s beautiful soul.
