Monday night's 2nd Annual Police and Firefighters' Benefit Dinner at the Dalton Depot Restaurant was a success, and the men and women of the Dalton Police Department and Dalton Fire Department extend thanks and gratitude to everyone who volunteered or came out in support of the event. Special thanks go to Dalton Depot Restaurant owner T.J. Kaikobad for providing his restaurant and the food for the benefit.
Proceeds from Monday night's dinner will go to benefit the City of Dalton Public Safety Scholarship fund at Dalton State College, which is being endowed to provide a scholarship to Dalton State for the child of an employee of the Dalton Police Department or Dalton Fire Department each year. Final figures for how much money was raised Monday night have not yet been tallied.
Guests to Monday night's dinner dined in at the Dalton Depot or drove through the curbside take-away line, and were served eggplant parmesan, baked ziti, and chicken parmesan.
Another fundraising event is coming up in September. Golfers, make plans now to join us on September 9th at Nob North for a Golf Tournament to benefit the City of Dalton Public Safety Scholarship! The entry fee is $65 per golfer, and the format is a select shot tournament with teams of four players. For more information, including an online sign-up form, click here.
