All restaurant owners hope for a full house every night but the founders of Taste and See hope they're all booked up this weekend, in an attempt to help the victims of the Boston bombings.

"Now more than ever we ask Wichita please just come this weekend and support it. It didn't happen here but it could and it feels like our duty to do something about it,” Executive Chef Jason Febres said.

Taste and See will donate 10 percent of their dinner sales from Thursday through Friday to the Red Cross.

"The people who are coming in, they're the ones who are donating. We're just kind of the medium to get it there,” General Manager Steven Bacci said.

The owner of Blu Nightclub is also asking his customers to help him raise money to send to Boston.

"In order to help, what do you do you do? I thought we could gather donations and then I could match them up to 500 dollars,” Owner of Blu Nightclub, Darren Greiving said.

Besides donating money to help the victims, a lot of people may want to donate blood. The American Red Cross says they have enough blood to meet the demands in Boston right now, but the need for blood is constant. The best way to help is to schedule an appointment to donate in the coming weeks.

Also, Red Cross and local first aid instructors say take note from the people who were able to jump in and provide immediate help to victims after the explosions. Consider taking first aid training.

"For those folks who are there, they can really be a life saver and help out in those first few critically moments,” Robert Clark, owner of First Aid Training Wichita said.
