TEMPLE, Texas — It has been nearly two weeks since Cactus Jack's, a popular bar in Temple, was destroyed by a fire.
On Saturday, Green Door, another bar in Temple, opened its doors to help them. Green Door hosted Cactus Jack's signature 'Karaoke for Kause' to raise money for them and their employees.
Eric Jones, the manager at Green Door, said the fire hit them out of nowhere and they knew they had to help.
"We used to go there and they come here, so the comradery between the two bars was something pretty cool," Jones said. "To see that happen to them was pretty heartbreaking."
Brittany Pedigo, a former employee at Cactus Jack's, met with old friends and said she wanted to show support for a place that was loved by many.
"It's a good place for the community, like a second home to a lot of people," Pedigo said.
Brian Bush, the brother of Cactus Jack's general manager, helped organize the event and said it means a lot that his brother Brad Bush has made such an impact.
"They're here for my brother, and what he's done with his employees, and what he's done for the community. It just makes me proud and very humble," Brian said.
Cactus Jack's has been hosting 'Karaoke for a Kause' for many others in their times of need, but assistant general manager Kami Miesner said they never imagined they would be the ones needing help.
"Every weekend we had fun. We celebrated each other we came together through many tragedies. We help people, and that feels good," Miesner said.
Now, Brad Bush said the Jack's family hopes to move forward and rebuild the place that many have called home.
"Everything is so up in the air because there are so many details to go over and it's just one thing at a time one day at a time right now," Brad said.
