Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Some Columbia business owners are coming together to help one of their own.

The owners of the Blue Cactus Cafe in Five Points have closed the restaurant temporarily as they mourn the loss of a family member.

Friends of the restaurant have set up a fund-raising page to raise money for Mike's wife, Julie and her family. Click here for more information or to donate.
