Tuesday night's explosion at the beloved JJ's restaurant on the Plaza emotionally shook many people, but now Kansas City restaurants and diners are coming together.
Saturday, participating restaurants will donate 10 percent of their sales to the JJ's Restaurant Support Fund. Money raised will go to help JJ's employees after the gas explosion and fire destroyed the restaurant, injured many and killed one.
"I think it's rather remarkable. I want to make sure everyone knows the effort and the community in not only Kansas City as a whole, but the food service community in Kansas City, how they've rallied to support around us," said JJ's employee Kevin Fossland.
Also, a fundraising page has been set-up online. Chef Terry Mille created the page whose donations will go to employees. As of Saturday morning, the fundraising page has already raised $19,875 and there are 13 days left to contribute.
