San Antonio’s Incredible Pizza Company will be hosting a day to support the families of fallen Dallas police officers on Tuesday, July 26, with up to 50% of the stores sales from the event going to the Assist the Officer Foundation in Dallas. Local families are encouraged to come out from 2 – 8 pm to show their support.
Activities for the day will include balloon art by Silly McNilly from 4 – 5 pm and the Mustang and Corvette Club car show from 6 – 8 pm. There will be Poké lures set for the Pokémon Go players, special appearances by patrol cars and fire trucks, and games such as musical chairs, karaoke, and contests to round out the day.
When asked why he took it upon himself to put together this event, organizer Derrick Kalk says, “With this tragedy happening so close to us in Texas, I wanted to make sure we at Incredible Pizza did everything we could to give our community the chance to come together for a day of family and friends to honor those who lost their lives protecting others. As a military city, San Antonio has a unique ability to understand the sacrifice these brave men made to keep the peaceful protestors, civilians, and residents safe.”
