Central Indiana restaurants taking part in fundraiser for Acapulco Joe's owner

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Restaurants around central Indiana are coming together to help raise money for a restaurant owner who was injured in an attack.

The owner of Acapulco Joe's, Grant Redmond, suffered a brain injury last month after police say he was attacked by a “dine and dash” customer. Redmond has been recovering since then but could still use some help with medical bills. 

Tuesday's fundraiser is to specifically support IMPD's victim's assistance fund but it's really easy to participate. A total of 21 different restaurants in the area will either give back a portion of their sales from Tuesday, the money from their tip jar or a specific donation amount as part of the fundraiser.

Half of the proceeds will go toward Redmond's medical care and the other half will be donated to IMPD's Victims Assistance Fund.

The total amount of funds raised will be announced on Tuesday, May 1 at 6 pm at Acapulco Joe's on Illinois Street.

Just in case you cant make it for a bite out of the house today but still want to give back You can donate directly to Redmond's GoFundMe page aimed at helping with his medical bills.

The following are a list of participating restaurants:
