TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson Denny's is hoping to help a family that suffered an unimaginable tragedy.

The restaurant at 6484 East Broadway Blvd. is offering free meals to anyone who donates money to the family of 9-year-old Edouard Lautaire, who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Tucson last week. The fundraiser will take place from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Restaurant owners say any donation amount will earn patrons a free meal, and 100% of all donations will go toward covering the boy's funeral expenses and the medical bills of his brother, who was seriously injured in the crash.
