CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KMOV.com) – All Bar Louie locations in St. Louis will donate 100 percent of their proceeds to BackStoppers in Ofc. Blake Snyder’s name on November 9.

The restaurant made the announcement that they would host a “Louie Loves” event on that day after a member of their Chesterfield location’s team turned away people wanting to park there for Ofc. Snyder’s funeral Thursday.

“On behalf of our entire Bar Louie staff we would like to issue a deep apology to the Chesterfield, Missouri community for actions taken by a member of our team during Officer Blake Snyder’s funeral services today. It was brought to our attention that guests of the funeral were turned away in our parking lot and asked to park elsewhere. We realize that this is an insensitive response to this tragedy and we hope the St. Louis County Police Department, the friends and family of Officer Snyder, the members of the St. Louis Family Church and the entire community will accept our sincere apology,” read a portion of the post on Bar Louie’s Facebook page.
