Outback Open For Lunch For A Good Cause

Hundreds went out to lunch to The Outback on Friday to help a little boy. At 18 months old, Chase Miller was diagnosed with Immune deficiency and Autism. The Outback is not normally open for lunch, but today they offered ten dollar meals, with steak or chicken, to help Chase's parents with medical costs not covered by their insurance.

Half of the proceeds will go toward covering a $25,000 stem cell transplant that would eliminate Chase's doctors visits.

Almost 400 people showed up today, a turnout the Miller's call overwhelming.

"We would never think we would have a big turn out like this for my son. For people that don't even know him to come out and give their time and give their effort to help my son, it means a lot to me," says Chase's father, Chris.

The fundraiser continues during lunch on Saturday. It's at The Outback from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. It's still ten dollars a plate. There will also be a silent auction with autographed sports memorabilia.
