Rogelio Santander, a three-year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, was fatally shot on Tuesday, April 24 while assisting with an arrest at a Lake Highlands Home Depot. Along with Officer Santander, Officer Crystal Almeida was also shot and is still in critical condition but is showing improvements.
To honor these officers, both Dallas Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar locations will donate a portion of the sales made on Wednesday, May 2 to the Blue Guardian Foundation to benefit the families of Officer Santander and Officer Almeida.
“This is truly heartbreaking, you never expect something like this to happen in your city,” said Steve Chambers, Sr. Director of Operations. “And while we can never adequately repay these brave officers for their service, we strongly believe in backing the blue, so we are going to raise money for their families whose loved ones risked their lives for our city.”
The fundraiser will take place from open to close on Wednesday at these Dallas Snuffer’s locations – 8411 Preston Road and 3526 Greenville Ave. If you can’t make it out to the fundraiser, donate to the Blue Guardian Foundation directly at Paypal/BlueGuardianFund.
Snuffer’s proudly backs the blue on an ongoing basis. All active-duty and retired first responders receive a 15% discount when dining at Snuffer’s – all day every day – in recognition of their service. (Valid ID or proof of service required.)
