Dallas lost five police officers on July 7, 2016, and the employees at Norma’s Cafe on West Davis lost a friend.

DART officer Brent Thompson, who was killed in the Downtown ambush last year, was a Norma’s regular.

As a tribute to Thompson and all of the officers killed or injured in that attack, Norma’s is donating  a portion of its sales this week to the Assist the Officers Foundation.

Order any of the cafe’s blue-plate specials — chicken fried steak, meatloaf, chicken and dressing, chicken fried chicken or chicken tenders — and a portion of that sale will go to the fund, through Friday, July 7.

The promotion also is available at Norma’s locations in Dallas and Frisco.
