prepare lunch for over 600 Motorcycle Riders
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I would like to thank our Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Volunteer Cooking Team for all they do to support our community and our agency.
This morning our team was at it bright and early by starting to prepare lunch for over 600 Motorcycle Riders that will participate in today’s “Law Ride.”
The Law Ride event is held annually, attracting riders from throughout Central Florida. Proceeds from the event go to support Concerns Of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and the Police Hall of Fame in Titusville, Florida.
C.O.P.S. is a national organization that helps take care of the children and families of Law Enforcement Officers that are killed in the line of duty each year in the United States.
In addition to our Cooking Team, I would like to also thank Correction Deputies Alan and Debra Rainey for all they do to make the event possible and also the many other volunteers who donate their time to help facilitate this incredible event.
We also greatly appreciate the Police Hall of Fame for providing such an incredible venue to hold the event each year.
