Police, firefighters team up for annual dinner to support needy Oklahomans


NORMAN, Okla. – While Christmas is just behind us, a group of police officers and firefighters are already preparing for Dec. 25, 2014.

The Norman Police and Fire Departments are teaming up for the annual Police/Fire Chili Supper, which is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 9.

Guests can head to the Norman High School common area from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. to take part in the event.

Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the door.

Children who are 7-years-old or younger eat for free.

Visitors can also use their ticket for a generous “to-go” plate, which will be sacked and ready for pickup.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Cleveland County Christmas Store.

Last year’s event raised over $6,500, which benefits those who would not otherwise have gifts for Christmas.
