Wendy's at Central and Tyler will give 15% of their proceeds from 5-8 Monday night to the Justice For Jenny Fund.
July 25 would have been Heckel's 28th birthday. In honor of her birthday, everyone is encouraged to wear purple, which was Jenny's favorite color.
"She was murdered and taken away too soon," said Troy Weekley, family member.
The family has added $5,000 to the reward fund. Crimestoppers is offering $1,000, and KBI is offering $5,000 to anyone who has information about Jenny's death.
"They say cash talks for some reason, and when the reward money is bumped every time, they get more leads," said Troy.
"Everybody, their heart aches for the family. Being close to the family, it has brought tears to our eyes. We need to support these people, and get this taken care of, and find out who did this horrible thing to Jenny," said Sharon Stump, family friend.
Heckel was murdered in her Hutchinson home on June 14, 2011. She left a son and husband behind.
"I want this person, or persons, to know that you took somebody so special away from us. You took Jenny, and I want you to know that we are not going to stop until we find justice," said Sonya Weekley, family member.
"Somebody somewhere knows something. I hope God weighs heavy enough on their shoulders, and in their hearts, that they will let somebody know something," said Sonya.
