The Promo Department: If You’re In El Cerrito…

The Red Onion restaurant is giving out free meals today, if you donate $25 to the reward fund to find the people who murdered owner Alfred Figueroa in April:

The meals, along with matching donations, are being provided by the sheet metal company for whom Figueroa also worked, West Coast Fab Inc. The offer extends from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. West Coast Fab will also match the donation, which will go toward a reward fund, said operations manager Karel Gray. The money will be turned over to the family if no reward is issued, he said.About 9:30 p.m. on April 26, Figueroa, his wife and three employees were cleaning up when four men, one of whom was armed with a gun, accosted them inside the hamburger restaurant at 11900 San Pablo Ave. near the El Cerrito-Richmond border.Figueroa, 40, came out of the restaurant’s office and was shot once in the chest when he resisted the assailants’ demands for money, police said.

Our thoughts go out to the Figueroa family; here’s hoping justice is served. Further contributions can be sent to the Alfredo Figueroa Memorial Fund at any Mechanics Bank.
