Wahlburgers Orlando announced Monday that it will donate more than $50,000 to the OneOrlando Fund in support of victims of the Pulse massacre.
The restaurant raised $25,402 selling Orlando Strong t-shirts with the Wahlburgers logo. Actor and singer Donnie Wahlberg, who founded the burger chain with his brothers Paul and Mark, personally added $25,000 to bring the total to $50,403.
“As a society, we often move on very quickly from such tragedies while the victims and their loved ones, most of whom will be affected forever, continue on the long and painful road to recovery and healing,” Wahlberg said in a statement. “Hopefully this donation will assist in that healing, and also serve as a reminder that there are still many victims struggling to rebuild their lives who need our continued financial and emotional support.”
