Local restaurants raise money for drowning victim's family

Posted: Updated:

A chain of restaurants is helping raise money to bury the son of a woman who works there.

Local Sweet Tomatoes restaurants are attempting to raise $10,000 to help bury ‘Jazz' Jones, 17, who died in a drowning accident a week and a half ago.

Donna Jones works at the Addison location and it has been a challenging two weeks for her.

In addition to dealing with the death of her son, Donna is battling breast cancer.

Sweet Tomatoes is donating 25 percent of Tuesday's sales in the Dallas area to help with funeral costs and medical bills for Donna.

 "This poor woman is already going through enough and then this tragedy hit her, so I said, ‘What could we do?'" said Jennifer Dautrich, Sweet Tomatoes general manager.

Jazz' former teammates from Newman Smith HS were among the people dining to show their support.

Dautrich is optimistic the local restaurants can hit the $10,000 mark.
