In August, FOX10 News partnered with the Mobile Police Department, Reese's Senior Bowl, Naman's Catering and Baumhower's Victory Grille for a dinner event called "In Search of Creole."
The event was a fundraiser in honor of officers Sean Tuder and Clayton Graham. The community showed up to support the officers, and more than $15,000 was raised.
A special check presentation at our studio during FOX10 News at 4 pm took place on Wednesday, September 11. "In Search of Creole" sponsors were able to present the officers' families with a check from the money raised.
The following were in the studio for the check presentation:
Krissy Tuder - Officer Sean Tuder's widow
Tameka Graham - Officer Clayton Graham's wife
Lawrence Batiste - Mobile Police Chief
James Barber - Mobile Public Safety Director
Jim Nagy - Reese's Senior Bowl Executive Director
