For the third year in a row, local business leaders are leading efforts to raise funds to underwrite two special events for local Public Safety professionals. The first celebration is to be held this October to thank Precinct 4 police officers for all they do to keep our community safe. This event will coincide with Cobb County Chamber of Commerce’s Public Safety Appreciation Week, and with the support of local businesses, organizations and individuals has now become an annual event.
The second event will take place in February 2016 when this volunteer group will host the Cobb County Fire Department’s annual awards banquet.
“Both events will take place in East Cobb, and we are confident that our community will rise to the challenge and provide the financial support needed to make these appreciation celebrations very meaningful for these special heroes,” says Susan Hampton, Regional Manager for Fidelity Bank, and chair for the Public Safety Celebrations. “Fundraising was very successful last year, with seed funding
already in place for this year’s events, however, there is still a need to raise additional funds to insure both events’ continued success.” says Susan. Local businesses, as well as families, school groups and civic clubs are encouraged to make donations to this worthy cause. Sponsorship opportunities begin at just $25 to “Thank a Hero”! See the facing page for details on the donation levels.
