Flamion was shot during an ambush attach in July. He was left paralyzed from the attack and is recovering at a facility in Colorado. 

Since July, several restaurants, schools and other groups have been joining forces to donate money for Ballwin police officer Michael Flamion.

Restaurants in the Ballwin area were able to raise $61,000 for injured Ballwin officer Mike Flamion. Upwards of 30 restaurants in the Ballwin area donated a portion of their profits to Officer Flamion’s family in August. From breakfast through dinner, a certain percentage of money earned went directly to them on Monday.

Organizers say the turnout was very high with long lines and long waits.

"It exceeded everything I could have hoped for. I set out with 4-5 restaurants and I'm up to 32 restaurants and I'm hoping to raise $20,000," said Zaitz-Fink, event organizer.

Those participating say it was a no-brainer to take part in the fundraising efforts.

“It’s not about the money,” said Bob Candice, owner of Candicci’s. “It’s about supporting the Ballwin police. They support me every single day that I’m here.”

On September 6, Doc's Harley Davidson in Kirkwood held a raffle for a new Harley Davidson Sportster. 

The officer's GoFundMe page has raised over $360,000.
