Law enforcement serves at Applebee's to benefit Special Olympics

Posted: Updated:

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Binghamton Police, the Broome County Sheriff's Office and members from the State Office of Mental Health took part in "Law and Orders."

The annual event takes place in multiple Applebee's restaurants throughout New York state. Officers helped serve meals with athletes. They also placed white envelopes on tables to ask for donations that will help the athletes go to February's Special Olympics in Rochester.

One of those athletes who appreciates the officer's commitment is Brandy Bush of Binghamton, who returned to the event for the sixth straight year.

 "Without law enforcement, this fundraiser we're doing... We would not be able to go out of town, play in tournaments," explained Bush. "It will help us meet new people, fans and everything." 

Bush will compete in softball at the games.

The Applebee's in Vestal also hosted the event.
