Fundraiser for Courtney Gale

I thought some of you might be interested in this.

-------
Good morning:
This is a reminder of the upcoming benefit BBQ for Sgt. Courtney Gale to be held in the Kohl's parking lot on Sunday, February 3rd, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm.

They will have BBQ chicken and all the fixings to go with it, T-shirts available for a donation, helicopter rides for a donation, personally labeled water bottles, and a bunch of goodies and stuff for the kids and families that can come out. For more information, please visit
http://www.getwellcourtney.com

If you click on "Amid cheers, officer off to rehab center in Atlanta" you are able to view the exciting event as she leaves St. Mary's to head to the Shepherd Spinal Center in Atlanta. The site is full of great information on her progress, a place to send your well wishes, and information on how you can contribute to the Courtney Gale Trust Fund if you are unable to attend the event.

For further information, please contact Investigator Jay Higgins at
jhiggins@oconeesheriff.org or Sheriff Scott Berry at sberry@oconeesheriff.org.

Here is an update/thankyou I received today (via a list):

---------------------------
The Oconee County Sheriff's office, the Athens-Clarke County Police
department, Sheriff Scott Berry, Investigator Jay Higgins and the whole law enforcement family would like to thank all that came out and gave donations for Sergeant Courtney Gale. This event was not about raising "X" amount of money, but to raise as much money as possible to aid Courtney is getting better.

She is in for a long ride ahead and we wanted to make sure she did not have to worry about anything but
healing. Hopefully, with the help of everyone, a big impact was made.
Thanks again for everyone who donated their time and/or money for this cause. THANKS SO MUCH.

Also, if you would like to see pictures of the event on Sunday, please
