Nearly $4,000 raised during annual fundraiser event
PRINCE GEORGE – Patrons who arrived at Nanny’s Barbecue this past Friday night were surprised when they discovered the restaurant was swarming with police officers and sheriff’s deputies. Fortunately, no crime had been committed.
The law enforcement officers were there to assist the local Special Olympics Programs and the Law Enforcement Torch Run by trading in their handcuffs and badges for menus and serving trays to assist servers at the Nanny’s Barbecue Restaurant during dinner. Donations, in the form of tips, were accepted for this worthy cause.
This year we were able to raise over $3,600 for Special Olympics and the Law Enforcement Torch Run.
A special thanks to all those that made the Nanny’s Tip-A-Cop such a huge success this year, all to benefit the Virginia Special Olympics, and especially the Prince George Special Olympic Athletes.
