"Money talks in a lot of different ways and I think that it will, if someone did see this person, it'll bring them out," said co-owner Anthony Derby.

The event will be taking place on Wednesday, October 25 from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 4101 N Florida Ave.

Brew Bus will also host a silent auction from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. They will offer two sets of two tickets to the Taste of The Heights Even on November 5 along with other items.

Derby says foot traffic has been down dramatically especially at night.  

"We're talking 30 to 40 percent of normal revenues so you know it could be anywhere upwards to 6, 7, 8 grand a week," said Derby.

They will be donating all the money from Wednesday's food and draft sales and silent auction to the Seminole Heights reward fund.

Right now, Crime Stoppers and ATF have teamed up to offer an $25,000 reward in the cases.

Anyone with any information regarding this case and who wants to be eligible for a cash reward is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477), report anonymously online at
