The Pro*Act Foundation, Monterey, Calif., has raised more than $34,000 to help the Red Robin Foundation Aurora Theater Victims Fund.
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers has been a Pro*Act customer since 2007, according to a news release.
Eight staff members from a Red Robin restaurant were in an Aurora, Colo, movie theater July 20 when a gunman killed 12 people and injured 58. One staff member died and seven were hospitalized, some with serious injuries, according to the release.
The Red Robin Foundation aims to help with medical bills and support the family of the deceased.
“We have reached out to our distributors, employees and supplier partners to help the Pro*Act Foundation make a meaningful contribution to the Red Robin Fund,” said Steve Grinstead, Pro*Act chief executive, officer in the release. “We want to help these team members who were so horribly affected by this senseless act of violence.”
