Owners of Royal Crest Lanes and Wayne and Larry’s Sports Bar and Grill in Lawrence plan to raise funds to help pay the medical bills for a 2-year-old Eudora girl who was injured in a deadly April 16 crash on Kansas Highway 10.
Owners of the bar and grill and bowling alley, 933 Iowa, will have a fundraiser June 20 for the family of Courtlynn Shutt, whose 5-year-old brother Cainan was killed in the crash.
Staff members are close friends with Courtlynn’s parents, Tommy and Ali Shutt. On June 20, proceeds from a $10 two-game bowling special and $5 shoe rental fee will go to the family. Also 50 percent of food sales at Wayne and Larry’s, excluding a wing special, will be donated to the Shutt family.
The Shutts have advocated that the Kansas Department of Transportation install a cable barrier along the highway median between Lawrence and Interstate 435. A petition for the cable barrier is expected to be at the event.
KDOT recently reopened a study of installing a cable barrier in the median.
