According to Aberdeen Fire Chief Phillip Richardson the fundraiser held this past Friday for Aberdeen Police Lieutenant Bryan Lett was “a great success!” Bryan is fighting a courageous battle against cancer and the fundraiser was held in order to help the Lett family with their medical costs.
With the final tally completed Monday the efforts raised in excess of $20,000.00 in the one day event! This money was raised by selling more than 8,500 raffle tickets and over 2,100 chicken tender plates. In addition to these funds a number of residents have made donations with more received today.
Chief Richardson commented on the incredible way our community came together to help Bryan and his family. Members of the Aberdeen Police Department and Aberdeen Fire & Rescue spearheaded the fundraiser, but the contributions that came from across the community including workers from the Aberdeen Town Hall who made baked goods for the day, are what made the day such a great success.
From early in the morning until the end of the fundraiser that evening the parking lot at the Fire Department was beyond capacity. Some of the highlights from the day mentioned include the soldier who stopped by and bought 500 lottery tickets to show his support. Another memorable story from the day was when a Pinehurst resident stopped by to make a $500.00 donation just because. These examples are in addition to the dozens of memorable events that day and the thousands or people that came out and showed their support.
