TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Dine Out For the Cure took place Tuesday evening at El Charro on The Ridge in Tyler.

Special guests, including our own Jennifer Kielman, volunteered as wait staff at the event, greeting those who attended and collecting funds for Susan G. Komen of East Central Texas. Money raised tonight will go toward finding a cure for breast cancer.

With tips alone, they raised $7,200

El Charro will also donate 20 percent of its sales this evening as well.

The fundraiser served as the kick-off to this weekend's Race of the Cure.

It will be held on Saturday May 12 at Bergfeld Park in Tyler at 9 a.m.
