Restaurateur Jeff Ruby hosting fundraiser for families of fallen Westerville police officers

Restaurateur Jeff Ruby has planned fundraising dinners across three states to benefit the families of fallen police officers Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering who were killed in the line of duty last weekend in Westerville, Ohio.

On Sunday, March 4, 100 percent of the night's purchases at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouses in Cincinnati; Columbus, Ohio; Louisville, Kentucky; and Nashville, Tennessee, will go directly to a fund set up in the names of the brave officers’ families.

“Along with the rest of the nation, we were heartbroken to learn of this tragedy,” Ruby said in a news release. “These heroes made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our community, basically responding to what they thought was a call for help.”

Reservations for the special Sunday Dinners are expected to fill quickly and are available by visiting or by calling the following numbers:

  • Cincinnati: 513-784-1200
  • Columbus: 614-686-7800
  • Louisville: 502-584-0102
  • Nashville: 615-434-4300

“We’re fortunate to have businesses in communities like Columbus where people like these gentlemen serve with such selflessness,” Ruby said. “We know that our guests and friends in Nashville, Louisville and Cincinnati will be honored to step up and help support these two great families in Columbus.”
