WESTWOOD, N.J. -- Members of the Westwood Police Department are raising money for a Special Olympics fundraiser in March -- and you can help by eating some Italian food. Really.
Officers and members of the PBA Local 206 will head to Giants Stadium on March 3, for the 2017 Snow Bowl, and participation requires a minimum fundraising goal of $2,000.
To help reach that goal, Westwood's Caffe Anello is hosting a benefit dinner on Sunday, Jan. 22.
Mayor John Birkner will be a special guest chef at the dinner, which will feature a four-course prix fixe menu, for $75.
"Since its inception, the Snow Bowl has raised more than $2 million for Special Olympics New Jersey," organizers noted.
"The success of this event directly helps more than 25,000 athletes train and compete free-of-charge, year-round, in 24 Olympic-type sports."
Seats are limited, so early RSVPs are encouraged. Call 201-786-8137, and make checks payable to Cafe Anello.
The restaurant is located at 425 Broadway.
