From Staff Reports
Locust Grove – Tragedy struck Boston when two explosions blew through the finish of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. Crossing the finish line turned into bloody chaos as two bombs blasted the end of the race. The blasts have left more than 170 injured, three dead and a nation looking for answers. A massive manhunt was underway for the two suspects, brothers Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Tamerlan is dead and Dzhokhar was taken alive into custody after hiding at the bottom of a covered boat in the backyard of a Watertown home.
After these tragic bombings there are victims that need the help of the American people. Koji Japanese Steakhouse in Locust Grove is hosting a fundraiser for the victims of this tragedy. “The victims of this horrible event are in need. The victims can’t work while recovering, they have medical bills that are accumulating and their lives have changed forever. These people are in need and we as a business and community want to help and give back,” said Sara Bryan, Koji Japanese Steakhouse Marketing Director.
Koji Japanese Steakhouse will be giving back 30% of their total sales for the day and 100% of the silent auction item money. “A lot of local businesses have really come together to donate items for the auction. We are so happy with the support from the community businesses, said Ricky, Owner of Koji Japanese Steakhouse. The fundraiser will be held this Saturday, April 27th from noon-close. All proceeds will be sent to the One Fund Boston.
