On Friday, La Segunda Central Bakery plans to host Sam Bitar Day, an all-day benefit event for its employee and baker Sam Bitar, who is suffering from sarcoma.

From open to close, that's 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., 10 percent of every purchase made at the Ybor City bakery will go directly to Bitar. The donations will help pay for his medical expenses during and after chemotherapy.

Those who can't make it out to the fundraiser may support Bitar through GoFundMe as well.
