Blue Jean Ball a success

Contributed

The inaugural Tallassee Police Department Blue Jean Ball was a huge success. The event was sponsored by the Tallassee Community Development Corporation. Todd Gantt and the Standard Deluxe Band played to a crowd of nearly 400 people on May 11 at the home of Jason Benton, owner of AES Industries in Tallassee.

The committee presented a check for 40,000 to the department with plans to give them even more money after all event expenses are finalized. The money raised will fully fund a citywide surveillance system and will also purchase tactical gear for all police officers.

The event committee included: Laura Leigh Peters, Brad Davis, Johnny Hammock, Jason Benton and Laurie Rygiel.

"People in town have requested that this become an annual event," Peters said. "This is something our team will definitely consider going forward."

Thank you to all sponsors!
