    First I would like to offer my condolences to everyone touched by this tragedy. Second I will have a benefit day at my restaurant ‘Blu American Eatery’ in downtown Petaluma and donate 10% of my total gross to the ‘Conover & Sullivan Children Trust Account’. If other downtown business would like to do the same contact me so we can discuss details, such as coordinating a date. I will post an update when I know more.
