T-Bones raises funds to benefit local fire forces

BEDFORD – Bedford T-Bones customers who donate $5 toward the Bedford Fire Department will receive a $5 dining certificate valid toward their next visit, according to T-Bones Web site.

T-Bones Great American Eatery and Cactus Jack’s are raising money for local forces through the restaurants’ annual “Thanks for Giving” fundraiser.

More than $103,000 has been raised over the past six years through “Thanks For Giving.”

This year’s effort runs until Nov. 13, and 100 percent of donations go to the local fire departments where T-Bones and Cactus Jacks are located, including Bedford, Derry, Hudson, Laconia, Manchester and Salem.

Money raised for the Bedford Fire Department will go toward a chest compression system, which costs $14,500.
