A three day fundraiser got underway today for the family of the fallen Highway Patrol Officer Kenyon Youngstrom.

He's the officer who was shot to death while making a traffic stop on Interstate 680 in Contra Costa County last month.

From now through Wednesday, California Pizza Kitchen restaurants throughout Northern California will donate 20 percent of its revenues the Kenyon Youngstrom Memorial Fund. The money will go to his family and to a college fund for his children.
