The Genghis Grill in College Station was packed Tuesday with those who wanted to show financial support for the family of Constable Bachmann who was killed while on duty last Monday.
The restaurant is donating all of Tuesday's proceeds to the Bachmann family.
People from all walks of life are having lunch for a common cause.
"To support the Bachmann family," said Kathy Powell of Bryan.
Powell came to Genghis Grill to eat and buy t-shirts knowing all of money is going to Constable Bachmann's Family.
He's someone she never knew.
"After hearing about Brian and all the good things he did and the impact he made on the community especially youth," she said.
College Station Officer Jose Alaniz has been selling t-shirts at College Station PD, selling some 2000 so far.
Tuesday he moved the sales here.
"I sat down with my wife and kids and thought of a way we could help the Bachmann Family out as well as continue on Constable Bachmann's legacy and spirit," said Alaniz.
Management at Genghis Grill came up with the idea to have something positive happen after the tragedy last week.
Lots of badges and men and women in uniform opened their wallets as well, including Chris McDermott, Chief Deputy of the Brazos County Precinct 2 Constable's Office.
"The outpouring has been tremendous," said McDermott.
"There's been so much negativity in Bryan / College Station the last week and a half, we wanted to do something to inspire something positive," said Joshua Hicok, Genghis Grill Manager.
Even Bachmann's young son Colby came for a light-hearted lunch with the youth of Christ United Methodist Church; surrounded by a community of people that truly care.
On Wednesdsay the Genghis Grill will host another fundraiser, this time for the family of Christopher Northcliffe, who was also killed in the shooting.
Next Tuesday from 5 P.M. to 8 P.M a fundraiser will be held for Barabara Holdsworth who survived the shooting.
The College Station restaurant is working on getting all eight Houston restaurant locations to join in too, since she's from there.
