[August 08, 2017]   LINCOLN - The family of Tad Johnson has been completely overwhelmed with the kindness and support of the Logan County community according to Tad's sister-in-law Jennifer Craig.

The fundraiser held at the Country Air Restaurant in Atlanta on July 12th raised $1,000 for the family from food sales at the eatery. In addition, special bracelets were sold at the restaurant that day, and that brought in an additional $1,300.

Now, another local restaurant wants to step up and help out. On Wednesday, August 9th, El Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant in Lincoln will donate ten percent of the food receipts for the entire day to the Johnson Family.

Johnson suffered a broken neck in a one vehicle accident in June of this year. He has undergone surgery and spent many days in a special hospital in Chicago for rehabilitation. Tad suffered paralysis but is working hard to recover.

The money earned through these fundraisers will assist Tad, wife Gina and their two daughters, Paige and Anna in overcoming the financial trials the family is facing.
