PDQ, a fast-casual restaurant that specializes in hand-breaded chicken tenders, salads and sandwiches, is sponsoring a fundraiser on Sunday to build a college fund for Alexis Oulson, the 2-year-old daughter of movie theater shooting victim Chad Oulson.
A portion of all lunch and dinner sales from the six Tampa Bay area PDQ locations will be donated.
Oulson, 43, of Land O'Lakes was fatally shot Jan. 13 in the Grove Cobb Theatres in Wesley Chapel during the previews for a matinee of Lone Survivor after an argument over texting. His widow and Alexis' mother, Nicole, suffered a hand injury in the shooting. Authorities have charged Curtis Reeves, a retired Tampa police captain, with second-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm. Reeves is being held without bail in the Pasco County jail until trial.
A news release from PDQ says Oulson was researching college funds for his daughter in the weeks before he died.
All bay area PDQ locations are participating in the fundraiser: South Tampa (2207 S Dale Mabry Highway), Carrollwood (12650 N Dale Mabry Highway), Wesley Chapel (27757 State Road 56), St. Petersburg (4526 Fourth St. N), Lakeland (4714 S Florida Ave.), and Sarasota (5164 S Tamiami Trail).
