Envelopes will be left at each table for those guests wishing to make a donation. These “special tips” are in addition to the regular servers gratuity.

At 4 p.m. officers and firefighters will be competing in a chicken wing eating contest and winner earns a $500 gift certificate for a charity of choice.

Raffle tickets will be sold during dining hours and prizes will be raffled off at 8 p.m.
