Red Onion owners Seaun and LaRae Richards, their employees and customers raised $10,000 to benefit the wildfire victims during a Chelan Fire Relief fundraiser Thursday at the Mountlake Terrace restaurant.

With the help of a last minute donation of $400 by the Fire 1 Foundation that was matched by the Richards, Red Onion Burgers will be writing a check to the victims of the Chelan Fire for $10,000.

“Thanks to all for the support, the volunteers, the customers and all that made it all happen,” Seaun Richards said. “We may set the bar high but our support team makes it happen. Thank you.”
