WORTHINGTON – This week’s Cop on Top event raised more than $6,600 for Special Olympics Minnesota, according to Worthington Police Officer Jacki Bomgaars.
The 24-hour fundraiser began Tuesday at 6 p.m. with Bomgaars raised to the top of the Hy-Vee Food Store by the Worthington Fire Department aerial truck. For the next 24 hours, Bomgaars and other officer worked in 4 hour shifts, laughingly heckling shoppers into donating for a great cause.
Burgers were served, t-shirts sold and donations grew.
Winners for the prize drawings are as follows:
