Papa John's and Ghengis fundraiser will bring in approx. $14,000 for the family of Deputy Brian Etheridge's. The Sedgwick County Deputy was killed in the line of duty two weeks ago.
Dawson Grimsley of Davis Moore says he will match the money raised.
Because of overwhelming response, Papa John's has extended its fundraising campaign for the Brian Etheridge Memorial Fund through Sunday, October 11th.
The company says restaurants were overwhelmed with contributors and many customers could not get served.
Stores will also be accepting donations for the family.

There's something about food that brings people together, around the grill, around a table, around a cause.
"It's excellent," said Seth Lenker, Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department. "This is an awesome turnout. The family should be very pleased."
