Snuffer’s Hosts Fundraiser For Fallen First Responders


DALLAS – Friday marks the one-year anniversary of one of Dallas’ most tragic days, when five of the city’s finest first responders were gunned down during an ambush. 

To honor their memory, Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar has joined Lakewood Brewing Company to host a fundraiser benefitting the Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing immediate financial assistance to the families of fallen first responders lost in the line of duty.

For every Lakewood All Call pint sold at Snuffer’s from Thursday, July 6, to Sunday, July 16, the brewing company will make a $1 donation to the organization. On Friday, July 7, Snuffer’s will match Lakewood’s donation, meaning that $2 will be donated for every All Call pint sold.

And as always, active-duty and retired first responders receive a 15% discount when dining at Snuffer’s – all day every day – in recognition of their service. (Valid ID or proof of service required.)

“What happened here in Dallas one year ago was truly heartbreaking and it reminded all of us at Snuffer’s that our freedoms aren’t free,” said Steve Chambers, Snuffer’s Director of Operations. “And while we can never adequately repay these brave men and women for their service, we do have the opportunity to raise money for the families whose loved ones made the ultimate sacrifice for our city and its residents.”

This fundraiser will take place from open to close at all 11 Snuffer’s locations. For the restaurant nearest you, and more information on the entire menu, visit

Guns & Hoses Benevolence Fund Opens For Fallen Little Elm Detective Jerry Walker

(Tuesday-January 17, 2017) At approximately 3:00pm officers responded to a report of an individual with a long gun in the 1400 block of Turtle Cove in Little Elm, Texas. Shortly after arriving, officers told the suspect to drop the gun, causing the suspect to run inside his home and begin shooting at the officers striking 15-year veteran Detective Jerry Walker. After being transported to Denton Regional Medical Center, Detective Walker succumbed to his gun-wound received in the line of duty. 

The missions of Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas is to show our respect and gratitude for first responders lost in the line of duty. We are dedicated to provide monetary support for the families of fallen first responders in the hour of need. 

The Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas has officially opened the Benevolence Fund to help assist the family of fallen Detective Jerry Walker. Since July of 2016, Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas has assisted the families of 8 fallen officers including, Fallen Irving Officer Dahl, SMU Officer McCullers, Corrections Officer Johnson, and the slain Dallas Officers lost in the July 7th tragedy. These men and women showed a great deal of strength in their lives and in our communities. The bottom line is, we can’t do it without your help.
