According to the GoFundMe page, the family plans to reopen the restaurant.
The fundraiser, which was launched around 10 a.m. Friday, topped its $15,000 goal within a few hours.
“It is my sincere wish that I will increase the amount requested to match the amounts given,” the customer who started the fundraiser said. “100% of the funds raised, less the GoFundMe fees, will go directly to the family; no money is for myself.”
The Tucker community has rallied around the restaurant, including a stream of customers stopping by the Main Moon storefront to leave flowers and condolence cards.
According to the GoFundMe page, the family is hoping to hold a funeral on Monday, May 24. There are several other Main Moon restaurants in Georgia owned by relatives of the Tucker family, and those are typically closed on Mondays.
