Tallahassee FL- A couple of well grilled steaks are helping people stay heart-healthy. The Leon County Sheriff's Office and Texas Roadhouse teamed up tonight to raise money and awareness for the American Heart Association.

We saw deputies walking from table-to-table passing out flyers and providing information about the cause. Major for the Leon County Sheriff's Office said, "You don't have to look far at all within your own family or within this community to find people who have been affected by heart disease. And this is just us doing a small part to help that process and help eradicate that process or work towards that."

Ten percent of all the money raised during tonight's event went towards the American Heart Association. The Sheriff's deputies collected direct donations as well.
