TAMPA, Fla. — Moved by the devastating fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, a local seafood restaurant says it'll donate some of its sales toward a rebuild.
Big Ray's Fish Camp posted on Facebook it's joining the cause Friday. The fire broke out Monday at the world's most iconic cathedral in Paris, happening less than a week away from Easter during Holy Week.
"On Good Friday we will donate a portion of our sales to the rebuild of Notre Dame," the restaurant posted with the hashtag, #theworldwillrebuildNotreDame.
Owner Nick Cruz said it's the right thing to do.
"Good Friday is the busiest day of the year for us," Cruz said. "It's only fitting to do what's right and give back.
"My mom taught me that."
The cause of the fire is not yet known, but Paris fire officials believe it is "potentially linked" to a $6.8 million renovation project on the church's spire and its 250 tons of lead, according to the Associated Press.
Big Ray's Fish Camp is located at 6116 Interbay Boulevard and is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, according to its website.
