The fundraiser is held at participating restaurants on Tuesday, Nov. 1.

“Obviously we want to honor and respect those families that lost loved one so I reached out to the other eight local owner operators, everyone just poured in with support so we said, let’s do this together,” said Mike Hartman, local restaurant Operator of Chick-fil-A Southington.

Restaurants will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the Bristol Police Heroes Fund, Chick-fil-A said.
