Today the owners of the Burger King, who held a fundraiser for the family of fallen LAPD hero Officer Landon Dorris, presented the proceeds in the form of a check to the Dorris Family. Chief William Bratton, along with the hardworking officers from Northeast Area praised Ralph and Lawrence Cimmarusti, owners of the fast food restaurant, for their wonderful giving spirit. Also praised for his equally kind heart was John Dutton, Director of Business Development, Sceptre Group of Companies, Inc., who matched a portion of the dontations.
We would also like to take this opportunity to give a "special thank you" to all of the community members who participated in the fund raising event that was held on November 2, 2006. This day represented a great day as we as police officers watched people who represented all walks of life help their police department come to the aid of one of its own.
