Lacombe Boston Pizza hosted ‘Cops, Pops and Pizza’ – a fundraiser for the Lacombe Special Olympics

All proceeds raised go towards costs involved with sports Special Olympians take part in

On Oct. 14th, the Lacombe Boston Pizza hosted ‘Cops, Pops and Pizza’ which is a fundraiser for the Lacombe Special Olympics.

Special Olympics and the Law Enforcement Torch Run once again joined forces to raise money to help support different sports programs for the Special Olympics.

All proceeds raised go towards the costs involved with each of the sports that Special Olympians take part in.

“This year with generous community support, we were able to raise $1,400 in just four hours,” stated Constable

Jeff Hewitt. Cilantro and Chive also presented a cheque in the amount of $1,510 to Lacombe Special Olympics. This amount was from proceeds of their ‘Burger of the month’ from September.

“Once again I would like to thank Boston Pizza and Cilantro and Chive for their commitment to Special Olympics and our amazing community here in Lacombe for supporting these two events” said Hewitt.
