Memories Pizza donations on GoFundMe top $500,000

A GoFundMe page set up by TheBlaze TV to help the owners of Memories Pizza in Walkerton reached $500,021 as of 8:32 a.m. Friday — less than 48 hours after it was started.

At noon, it had reached $552,197. At 8 p.m., it totaled $842,387.

The owners of Memories Pizza closed the business Wednesday, April 1, because they came under fire after an interview in which they expressed support for Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act and said they would not cater a same-sex wedding because it goes against their religious beliefs.

Crystal O’Connor, a co-owner of the business, told TheBlaze on Wednesday night that she didn’t know when, if ever, the business would be re-open.
