Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar and Happy's Irish Pub are stepping up to help support the families of the victims of last week's horrific shootings at a Lafayette movie theater.

On Monday, Aug. 3, 100% of gross sales (up to $25,000) at Walk-On's and Happy's Lafayette locations will be donated to the fund established by the United Way of Lafayette to support the families of the victims in the July 23 shootings.

"All of us in the Walk-On's family are sickened and distraught over the pure evil that visited our community last week," said Brandon Landry, co-owner of Walk-On's Enterprises, which owns the Walk-On's and Happy's Irish Pub concepts. "There's nothing any of us can do to make things right, but we want to do what we can to assist with the healing and recovery process. We hope people in and around Lafayette will come to Walk-On's or Happy's on Monday, seek solace in our collective grief and show the families of the victims that we're here for them. We'll donate every penny we take in to the fund."

Several Walk-On's Enterprises vendors, including Reinhart, Coca-Cola, A La Carte and Capitol City Produce, are donating product to assist with the fundraiser.

Walk-On's sports bar is located at 2336 Kaliste Saloom Road in Lafayette. It is open from 11 a.m. to Midnight daily.

Happy's Irish Pub is located at 1315 Camellia Boulevard in Lafayette. It is open from 3 p.m. - 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and closed Sunday.
