SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (WMTV) -- A local food spot will host an all day fundraiser for the family of Sun Prairie Fire Department Captain Cory Barr on Monday, July 30.

Captain Cory Barr lost his life in Sun Prairie after a gas line was hit July 10. All proceeds from Monks Bar & Grill at 2832 Prairie Lakes Dr. next Monday will go to the family.

"I'm a father of three little girls at home, a Sun Prairie resident for 10 years. So this was just a natural thing to do. We just want to support that family because we know the tragedy they've gone through," Greg Frankov said, owner of Monks Bar & Grill in Sun Prairie.

Barr leaves behind his wife and two twin girls.
