The event will be held this Friday and Saturday from 7 to 11 p.m. and diners will be asked to place a minimum $5 donation inside the giant firefighter boots on display as they arrive.
The New Brothers Band and Jared Blackstone will provide live music, and boots will be placed around the bar for guests to donate more throughout the night. During this "Fill the Boot" party 100 percent of the donations will go to a special fund created by 100 Club of Arizona, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting, among others, families of public safety officers.
Renegade by MOD opens at 2 p.m. and even if you can't make it for the music, come anytime Friday and Saturday and the restaurant will donate 5 percent of the entire day's sales to the 100 Club fund as well.
