The turnout for the Dorris family fund raiser was enormously huge. It made me feel good to see so many people from so many agencies participate. When will the results be known?

They raised over $18,000! It was awesome, I went at lunchtime and it was packed! The two guys who own that Burger King did a very, very good thing. See -- who says you can't make a difference? They did!

And the burgers were gooooood.

The Cimmarusti family showed their "royal" noblesse oblige (the obligation of honorable, generous, and responsible behavior associated with high rank, birth or a Burger King franchise).

The LAPD/law enforcement family sincerely thank them for their generosity.
