Right now, there's another way that's not so controversial to help out the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. Just dine out.
 
Dozens of Tampa Bay restaurants are donating money to the One Orlando Fund Thursday.
 
 
Ava is donating 25 percent of their profits to the fund. Some diners are eating there for that reason.
 
"We all wanted to do anything we could to help and kind of be advocates for that group, you know, if it's donating money, donating time, just kind of reaching out and showing that we care in any way," one patron of Ava, Emily Seitz, said. 
 
Holy Hog is donating one dollar per customer check.
 
"Probably today we'll donating between $500 and $1,000 between the four stores combined," operations manager of Holy Hog Matt Strickland said. 
 
Strickland said they want to support the families and victims. That's why David Wynns brought his friends to Holy Hog for lunch for the first time. 
 
"We can pray this will never happen again, you know, that's all we can hope for. But in situations like this everybody needs to come together. We really do," Wynns said.
