Patrons and police officers piled their bowls high with stir fry at Genghis Grill restaurant Wednesday afternoon.

The piling was for a good cause — 20% of Wednesday’s proceeds at the restaurant will go to the Brotherhood for the Fallen.

The nonprofit, which started in Chicago in 2010, honors officers killed in the line of duty and donates money to those officers’ families. The organization also aims to send at least two officers of the Fort Worth Police Department to every funeral in the nation of a law enforcement officer who was killed in the line of duty.

Most recently, Fort Worth members attended the funeral of El Dorado County Deputy Brian Ishmael, who was shot and killed on Oct. 23, in California.
