Local restaurateurs are marking 9/11 with a fundraiser to help local first responders.  

More than 50 locally-owned restaurants, from the Roasterie to Pierponts, are taking part in the Red, Dine and Blue event Tuesday. Ten percent of all proceeds from those restaurants will be given to the HeroFundUSA.

"We try to go whatever we can to support those that support us," said KC Originals president Greg Hunsucker, who owns V's Italiano in Independence. 

HeroFundUSA donates money for supplies and equipment to police and fire departments and offers financial support to their families in times of line-of-duty injuries or loss.
