TAMPA, FL /24-7PressRelease/ -- On July 7, 2010, Beef 'O' Brady's, a 250-unit restaurant franchise known for the bond they create with communities across the country, held a special fundraiser event at 58 of their restaurant locations across Tampa Bay for the families of two local police officers, David Curtis and Jeffery Kocab, who were shot and killed in the line of duty.

The local Tampa Bay Beef 'O' Brady's restaurants raised a total of $25,000, while the local Beef 'O' Brady's Home Office donated an additional $10,000, bringing the total donation amount to $35,000.

To show support, the staff at several Beef 'O' Brady's restaurants donated a percentage of their tips. Beef 'O' Brady's also had local vendors step up to show their support by making donations.

"This event was not about Beef 'O' Brady's. It was about a community pulling together to help families of public servants who put their life on the line doing their jobs. We have always strived to be an integral part of our communities. This week proved it in a big way. I am proud to be a part of Beef 'O' Brady's" said, Chris Elliott, CEO
