‘We rally together when shit gets bad’: Too’s to hold fundraiser for Reagan Tokes on Valentine’s Day
100 percent of profits on Tuesday, February 14th will be donated to her family
In the wake of tragedy striking our OSU community, one campus bar has decided to help out in the best way they know how.
On Valentine’s Day, Too’s will be donating 100% of their profits to the family of Reagan Tokes who has been murdered after being reported missing.
Too’s told The Tab the idea for the fundraiser was the first thing they thought of when they heard the news.
“We owe it to our regulars who support us, to support them and their families when they need it.”
Super huge thank you to our great friends @printedbypops for knocking these out for tomorrows #ToosdayForTokes fundraiser, on such short notice. They were also generous enough to donate the printing cost, meaning more money to go towards the fundraiser. I want to say the support from our community surprises me, but it doesn't. Because like I've been saying, when shit gets bad we rally together and we do that time and time again! #asseenincolumbus #asseenoncampus #myohioadventure #columbusalive #columbusunderground #nbc4columbus #10tv #cbusgivesback #columbus #ohio #buckeyenation
The owner of Too’s, Scott Ellsworth, said that as a father he is “deeply sad for what those parents must be going through,” and hopes that with the fundraiser will “take one second of stress away from Reagan’s family.”
“It’s every parents worst nightmare. I know we’re just a dive bar in the basement underneath high Street. But if we can take one second of stress away from her family, then it will have been worth it. We understand money doesn’t fix or change anything. But I also know you don’t put money away for your child’s funeral and if we can help with that burden, then we feel like we’ve at least done something positive to help out.
***Toos will be hosting a fundraiser next Tuesday from 8-close. We will donate 100% of all profits to the family of @reagantokes. Finding this picture of her was just so heartbreaking and wonderful at the same time and that's when we decided we need to do something. We understand money doesn't make this truly horrific event go away for her family in any way. Our only hope is that it helps take a tiny bit of stress away and shows her friends and family how much she means to The Ohio State community and that when times get tough we rally together. She was a big supporter of ours, so now it's time for us to support her friends and family during their time of need. Please share this!! #ripReagan #TellAFriend #asseenoncampus #asseenincolumbus #columbusunderground #columbusalive #ohiostate #onceatoosregularalwaysatoosregular
Too’s is expecting a full turnout on Tuesday.
“It’s what we do on campus. We rally together when shit gets bad.”
So instead of spending your Valentine’s Day eating a heart shaped pizza, come grab a drink with your friends and help out a Buckeye was taken way too soon.
