O'FALLON, Mo. (KMOV.com) --- Every dime counts.
That's the message a restaurant in O'Fallon, Mo. is focusing on for a fundraiser to help a grieving family who lost their son in a car accident.
Brayden Hood and fellow student Mario Montalvo were killed when the car they were riding in crashed on Highway 47 just west of Sunswept Drive in Lincoln County Sunday night.
The restaurant, which is located on Monticello Plaza, is normally closed on Mondays but they will open their doors on Aug. 26 in an effort to drum up support and donations.
Dirty Dogz is allowing customers to pick the price for their meals.
"If you wanna pay $1.00 that’s fine or if you wanna pay $100.00 that’s cool too. Pay what you want for your dog. ALL money collected including tips, 100% of the money collected will go to help Erin and her family," they wrote on Facebook. "My staff is volunteering their time, Dirty Dogz is donating the food. We’re keeping nothing, not a dime."
Hood's mother Erin worked at the restaurant for over 20 years, according to the Facebook message.
Tickets will also be raffled off for hot air balloon rides and a hot dog car will be out in the parking lot of the restaurant.
Dirty Dogz will be open from 4 p.m. At this time, there is not a designated close time.
A GoFundMe has been created to help with Hood's funeral costs.
