July 7, 2016 was a tragic day in Dallas history, when five of the city’s finest were fatally gunned down during an ambush. Seven additional police officers and two civilians were also wounded in the attack.

To honor the memory of the fallen, Dallas restaurateur and retired NYC police offer Joseph Palladino is hosting a fundraiser at Coal Vines in Uptown. 

The Uptown pizza and wine bar will donate 25% of all sales made on Friday, July 7 – the one-year anniversary of the Dallas tragedy – to the Guns & Hoses Foundation of North Texas, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing immediate financial assistance to the families of fallen first responders lost in the line of duty. Last year, shortly after the tragedy, Palladino raised more than $500,000 during his “Dine for Dallas Blue” event benefiting Guns & Hoses.

“What happened here in Dallas one year ago broke my heart, it made me angry, and it reminded me that our city is blessed with some of the bravest men and women in uniform,” said Palladino. “So we are asking the community to join us once again in remembering these fallen officers and to help the families of others who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our city and its residents.”

Coal Vines Uptown, located at 2404 Cedar Springs Road, Ste. 500, is a popular pizza and wine bar concept renowned for its signature New York-style pizzas, salads, pastas, entrée specials and desserts. It offers an extensive selection of stellar wines by the bottle or glass.
