Back Columbus Blue hosts 2nd annual Christmas dinner for police, families

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - As a way to thank the local law enforcement, Back Columbus Blue hosted its second annual Christmas Dinner for the Columbus police officers, retired officers, families, and police department employees.

Organizers say the event serves as a way for community members thank local law enforcement officers and their families.

The event is funded by t-shirt sales and other fundraisers throughout the year, but those in charge of the event say you can never thank people enough.

"Great time for our citizens in Columbus to be able to show their appreciation to our law enforcement and public safety," said co-founder Paul Voorhees.
