BBQ fundraiser held to benefit families of fallen Dallas officers

Trinity Oaks, Operation Comfort, Colonial Life, Grumpy's combine resources

SAN ANTONIO – A barbecue plate fundraiser was held Monday in San Antonio to help the families of the fallen Dallas police officers recently killed in an ambush.

The fundraiser was held at Grumpy’s Mexican Cafe for $10 a plate.

Trinity Oaks, a nonprofit that provides hunting and fishing trips for underserved people, partnered with Operation Comfort, Colonial Life and Grumpy's for the fundraiser.

Grumpy's and Colonial Life donated the food. Operation Comfort and Trinity Oaks collected donations and provided support for the event.

"We just want to make a difference and give back to the officers for what they do," said Tom Snyder, founder of Trinity Oaks. "You know, people are looking down on officers. They're getting bad publicity, and they're out there to protect and serve. We just wanted to do our part and show we appreciate them and show we wanted to do something for them,"

Snyder said the goal of the fundraiser was to raise $10,000.
