WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The community is still going Blue For Brian, the Wichita police officer that was hit by a stolen car nearly two weeks ago and the Wagonmasters’ have joined in to support.
“It feels good to be able to help out,” said Brandon Fitts, the Captain of the Wichita Wagonmasters.
The Wagonmasters are known year around for their massive amounts of chili but this time it’s for a cause that’s proven to be near to all of our hearts, Brian Arterburn and his family. The proceeds from the chili feed will go to Honore Adversis Foundation. The organization provides financial assistance to officers like Brian Arterburn, who have been hurt in the line of duty.
All the supplies for the big chili feed next weekend are being donated. Even Sam’s Club and the Warren Theatre is making a donation to the cause.
“We just wanted to give back to the police department,” said Brad Fitts, Captain of the Wagonmasters. “What they do for us every day just seemed like the thing to do, for us to be able to support.”
Officer Arterburn is still in critical condition at Via Christi hospital, suffering injuries to his abdomen, chest, and brain. The Wagonmasters’ chili feed will take place in Old Town Square this upcoming Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
