Charles County Officers Raise $6459 for Special Olympics
On any given day, Charles County Sheriffs officers can respond to a number of calls, ranging from a home invasion perpetrated by a squirrel to an intruder in the house. But on April 28 and 29, they responded to calls for seafood dinners, more biscuits and drink refills. Once again, the Charles County Sheriffs Office participated in Cops and Lobsters fund-raiser at Red Lobster in Waldorf for Special Olympics Maryland.
During the event, volunteers assisted Red Lobster employees by waiting tables and working in the kitchen of Red Lobster for donations to Special Olympics Maryland, a year-round sports program for children and adults with special needs. This year, Cops and Lobsters raised $6,459 for Special Olympics.
The following officers participated in the event: Lt. John Caywood, Sgt. Craig Stillwell, Sgt. Augustus Proctor, Sgt. Jody Powell, Cpl. Rhett Calloway, Cpl. Gary Owen, Cpl. Charles Smith, Officer Lee Potter, Officer John Hastings, Officer Clarence Black, Officer Michael Kennedy, Officer Elizabeth Starcher, Officer Scott Kirsch, Officer Kristen Clark, Officer Jesse Williams, III, Officer Christopher Stufft, Officer Jamel Clagett, Community Organizer Connie Gray, Police Communications Officer Sarah Vaughn and Maryellen Kraese, Teen Court coordinator.
We are extremely grateful to the employees of Red Lobster for making this event possible and to the community for their generosity and support, said Charles County Sheriff Frederick E. Davis. This is a wonderful community event that supports an inspirational organization.
