Dunk a Cop and Link Sale Fundraiser to support M.A.D.D.

A Dunk a Cop and Link Sale Fundraiser will be held at the Market Basket on Highway 105 in Beaumont from noon until 3:00 p.m. Friday, September 25, 2015. The event is being hosted by the Injury Prevention Coalition of Southeast Texas, local law enforcement agencies, the Texas Department of Transportation, and Zummo Meat Company to support our local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.). 

Local residents will have the opportunity to dunk Beaumont PD officers, Jefferson County deputies, and DPS troopers. At three throws for $5.00 and Zummo links for $2.00, the aforementioned organizations hope to raise significant funds and more importantly, awareness of impaired driving and its effects on the community. All proceeds will support M.A.D.D. and its endeavors.

Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Stephanie Davis says the event is an opportunity for citizens to "speak with law enforcement officers, traffic safety advocates and members of M.A.D.D. about the impact that impaired driving has on them professionally and personally."
