Buy a Piece of Strawberry Pie for Restaurant Crime Victim

Updated 1 year ago Edited by Tony Rutherford from Multiple Reports

Fresh strawberry pies come to Jim's Restaurant, 920 Fifth Avenue, this week. Sales generally establish records. This year fifty cents from each piece will be contributed to a medical fund for Sid Torlone, owner of G.D. Ritzy's, 1335 Hal Greer Blvd., which was robbed on the morning of April 28. 

Torone suffered serious head injuries. A criminal complaint indicated that he had been robbed at knife point, strangled with a cord, and beaten four times with a large metal object.  A delivery person found him about forty minutes later bleeding on the floor. He underwent surgery at Cabell Huntington Hospital. 

Jimmie Carder and Larry Tweel, the owners of Jim's came up with the plan to donate  to a medical fund established for Torlone  and his family for each piece of strawberry pie sold. 

An account has been established at First Sentry Bank. Anyone who wants to contribute can mail a check for the "Sid Torlone Fund" to the bank. 

 Hood Realty Company will donate $2 for every new like on the company's Facebook page or new Instagram follows by May 19.
