Frankfort police officers in partnership with Montgomery Aviation will host their 4th annual Fish Fry Fundraiser to raise money in support of Generation Rescue.
Tickets available at the door: $5.00 for kids (6 to 12) and $10.00 for adults.
According to Police Chief Troy Bacon, Frankfort officers have been granted a temporary relaxation of the facial hair policy that will permit officers to grow a goatee or sole patch for the generous donation of at least $20.00.
"The police department is very excited to be fundraising for Generation Rescue again this year. Autism affects so many nationwide and locally as well," said Bacon.
Frankfort Police Detective Robert Hession who has twin sons diagnosed with autism has spearheaded local fundraising for he past 3 years, including chairing the annual fish fry.
According to Hession, for the last 3 years, the Frankfort Police Department and Frankfort community are the only groups in the U.S. doing anything similar to this fundraiser for Generation Rescue.
"We are asking local businesses and organizations to show their support by making a monetary or product donation to the event. With all proceeds going to Generation Rescue, we need everyone's help to make our June 30 event a success in fighting autism," Hession said.
