The preliminary count of the 2017 Haywood County Cops on Top donations is $35,000 and there are still donations coming in.
With this year’s fundraising totals so far, it looks like Haywood County has achieved a new state record for the single highest grossing Cops on Top fundraising event in North Carolina.
“Achieving our fundraising goal of $35,000 was not an easy feat, but with everyone’s outpouring of support it was possible,” said HCSO Deputy Daniel Blagg. “We had an abundance of local and out of the county businesses step up in a big way by generously sponsoring this year’s Cops on Top. Our amazing volunteers worked countless hours and played a vital role in the huge success of the event. Haywood County never ceases to amaze us when it comes to extending a helping hand to others in need. It’s very humbling to see everyone band together with such strong determination to raise awareness for Special Olympics. Sincerely from the bottom of our hearts we say thank you for your generous support!”
