Billboard Helps Raise Money for Special Olympics
Two Jefferson City police officers and one local business owner "fished" for donations from the top of the Coca-Cola building. The three were "billboard sitting" for 30 hours to raise money for Missouri Special Olympics athlete training and competition fees. They hoped to raise $7,000 by Friday.
"Just in my experience, this is right up there as one of the most worthy causes that people have the ability to help with. And I have the ability to help with it, so that's what I'm doing," said Police Sergeant Randy Werner.
The group fell just short of its goal, raising about $6,600. To help, contact the Jefferson City Police Department.
