A barbecue fundraiser for the family of fallen San Luis Obispo Police Detective Luca Benedetti brought in more than $8,000 this week.
The fundraiser, hosted by the Central Coast Crushers baseball team, took place Tuesday at Heavenly Home in Paso Robles.
Organizers call the event a “huge success," saying cars were lined up down the street.
The funds will reportedly be delivered to the department next week.
A gofundme page established for the family has raised nearly $590,000.
Benedetti was shot and killed while serving a search warrant in San Luis Obispo last week. His funeral and procession took place Thursday.
