Last Call for Cpl. Breck Scott SIGIS Fundraiser

Last call for the fundraiser for Shreveport police Cpl. Breck Scott; our fundraiser here ends Monday.  If you haven't yet found a few dollars to send for this worthy cause, please try.  The original story is here.

If you live in the Shreveport area, the El Chico restaurant on Greenwood Road is holding a fundraiser on August 12:

A local El Chico restaurant will be holding a benefit for a Shreveport police motorcycle officer who was seriously injured in the line of duty last spring.  El Chico Restaurant at 2127 Greenwood Road in Shreveport will donate a portion of their proceeds to Cpl. Breck Scott on Aug. 12. Cpl. Scott, a seven year veteran of the department, was injured April 5 when he was struck by a vehicle while operating his department issued motorcycle.

Breck has suffered extreme complications due to injuries he sustained in the crash and has had multiple surgeries since that time.  El Chico Manager Albert Waters remarked, “We want to invite everyone to come out and help us with this fundraiser for Breck and his family. This is a tough time for them and we want to do our part to help them out.”

The benefit will run from 10:30 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. with 10% of the gross sales being donated to Scott.

I want to thank everyone who has donated so far and I want to thank Mike at A Cop's Watch for all he has done in support of Cpl. Scott.  I can only imagine how appreciate Cpl. Scott's family is of Mike's personal visits while Cpl. Scott was hospitalized in Houston and of the support of The Blue Knights Texas Chapter VII.

If you'd like to donate to help cover Cpl. Scott's medical bills not covered by insurance please hit the Donate button in my sidebar or if you prefer to make your donation directly to the fund set up for Cpl. Scott, you can make the check out to Breck Scott, put "For Deposit Only" on the back, and reference acct. number 5732676084. The address for Capital One Bank is 333 Travis Street, Shreveport, LA 71101.  You can do that anytime, even after the SIGIS fundraiser ends.

C'mon!  Last call!  It's a good cause!
