‘Cop on Top’ fundraiser benefits Special Olympics in Portsmouth
The five-hour “Cop on Top” fundraising effort garnered over $1,500, raised awareness for Special Olympics New Hampshire, and provided some laughter for Sunday shoppers.
“Cop on Top” was a new idea this year. Four local law enforcement officers — Newington Master Patrolman Seth Applebaum, Greenland Patrolman Mike Gobbi, Rye Sgt. Scott Blaisdell and Newington Patrolman James Hoyt — braved the blazing sun to wave at visitors and raise money for the organization.
Behind the megaphone, Ray Jacques, regional district manager of Bozzuto’s, McKinnon’s grocery distributor, strongly encouraged every passerby to donate money, even using his booming voice to stop cars driving through the parking lot.
It was so much fun they plan to go back this year and were on hand at McKinnon’s on Sunday to support the fundraising effort and raise awareness for the ride.
