California Pizza Kitchen is stepping up to support the family of Gardena Police Officer Toshio Hirai who died Nov. 15 in a motorcycle crash.
For one day only on Wednesday, Jan. 2, CPK participating restaurants in Los Angeles and Orange counties are donating 20 percent of all proceeds to the family. To participate, diners may simply mention the fundraiser and the restaurant will make the donation.
The fundraiser, in connection with the Gardena Police Officer’s Association, will help Hirai’s family get through a difficult time. The 34-year-old was a loving husband and father of a 2-year-old girl.
The 12-year veteran of the Gardena Police Department worked as a SWAT team member and a traffic investigator before becoming a motorcycle officer. Hirai was on his way to work on his police motorcycle traveling northbound on Western Avenue near 238th Street when the crash occurred.
Participating CPK restaurants are located in Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Rolling Hills, Marina Del Rey, Long Beach, Lakewood, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Rainbow Harbor, Santa Monica and Seal Beach.
