ST. LOUIS • Nearly two dozen St. Louis County restaurants are participating in a fundraising effort to assist Ballwin Police Officer Michael Flamion, who was shot during a traffic stop in July.
The group Dine out for Ballwin Police Officer Mike Flamion posted to its Facebook page four new dates for the fundraiser "Meals for Mike," including Monday. Other dates slated for the fundraiser are Oct. 10, Nov. 14 and Dec. 12.
Flamion, 31, paralyzed by a gunshot to his neck, was transferred to a rehabilitation hospital in Colorado in August.
The retail store Talbots in Chesterfield plans to host a benefit event for Flamion on Sept. 22, with 10 percent of sales going to the officer. A number of other businesses and non-profits have hosted fundraisers in his name since the shooting.
