Tip jar supporting 5 year old with hemophilia stolen from local restaurant.
13WMAZ reported this story – Bikers Rally to Raise Money for Warner Robins Boy – today. As it turns out, many people have come forward to help out 5 year old Matty Hancock, whose donation jar was stolen from Jus’ One More Bar & Grill last week. Matty is a severe hemophiliac.
Shocking news out of Warner Robins, Georgia. A local restaurant that has been raising money for a 5 year old has reported that someone has stolen the money. One Warner Robins Bar & Grill’s tip jar is taken out everyday for Matty Hancock, a 5 year old with hemophilia. As the story goes, security footage shows a man who takes the tip jar from the counter, place it under his coat and walk out of the establishment. There was an estimated a couple hundred of dollars in that specific jar.
“I actually saw (the culprit) reading the flyer on Matty, and I guess that’s when he decided to steal Matty’s money,” Joann Sulak, the restaurant’s manager, told NBC Channel 41. “I knew it wasn’t one of my regulars because we’ve never had to worry. In fact it was somebody that nobody knew.”
Jus’ One More Bar & Grill, located at 4993 Russell Parkway in Warner Robins, Georgia is hosting a fundraiser this upcoming Sunday to help raise money for Matty Hancock.
