June 21, 2016
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Steak and servers who line dance! Tuesday, Texas Roadhouse on Capital Circle in Tallahassee raised money for victims of the Orlando shooting.
The restaurant donated 10 percent of all food sales to Equality Florida.
Server Miles Derwick, who came up with the idea, says it's important to help those who were affected.
"These people do need help, not just now. They need grief counseling six months to a year from now, and that kind of thing is going to be difficult. Those people killed were my age, so it could've been me," said Derwick.
The restaurant will also have an onsite blood drive this Saturday and a nationwide fundraiser next Monday.
