Cedar Rapids (KWWL) - Eastern Iowans ate dinner and helped the family of an injured officer at the same time Monday night.

Texas Roadhouse in Coralville donated 10-percent of all of the night's proceeds to the Davis family. Officer Tim davis suffered head injuries when he was assaulted on duty.

You could find letters from elementary school students to Officer Davis all over the restaurant. Many customers waited almost an hour for a table. The restaurant's manager estimates they raised $1,400 from the benefit.

"It's amazing. I just think people really feel for this family. He's a young father and it just really hits people in the heart and they want to help in any way they can and this is an easy way to do it," said Kandi Baylor, restaurant manager.
