ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany business opened its doors Sunday to help raise funeral funds for a family in need. The Quickie Restaurant is usually closed on the weekends, but was open for business to help the Henderson family raise money to bury 23-year-old Arthur Lee Henderson.

Members of the Henderson family also stood in front of the restaurant to raise more money through a car wash.

"We decided to open up the restaurant and to have all of the proceeds go to their family to help with the funeral costs," said restaurant owner, Mike Woodward.

"The cost is probably in the range of three to four thousand, and we are trying to raise as much money as we can. We are asking for the public to come out and help the fund and help donate," said sister, Patricia Henderson. 

Arthur Henderson was hit by a van on I-75 in Henry County when he tried to run across the interstate to escape. Henry county police officers tried to arrest him when they realized he was an escaped Albany probation violator.
