Dine Out for the Blue

Date:   Saturday, May 20, 2017
Time:   4:00 PM - 12:00 AM
Place:  Numerous Participating Restaurants

If you are looking for a good reason to Dine Out on Saturday, May 20th, we have the reason. The Trauma Survivors Foundation has partnered with several local restaurants to bring you "Dine Out for the Blue". Enjoy a night out and help support the DSTA Cpl. Stephen Ballard Memorial Fund and the Emerald Society Benevolent Fund for Police Officers. 

Delaware State Trooper Cpl. Stephen Ballard bravely lost his life on April 26, 2017 leaving a wife and young step child behind. The Delaware State Trooper Association has created a fund to help Cpl Ballard's family. The Emerald Society Benevolent Fund was established to help Police Officers in times of emergency with paying utilities bills, mortgage payments, and other needs.

To participate in the Dine Out for the Blue, just head to one or all of the participating restaurants, purchase food, drinks, "Back the Blue" wristbands, and 50/50 chances! The participating restaurants will donate a portion of sales and food/drink specials. 

You can purchase the "Back the Blue" wristband for $5 at each participating restaurant. Proceeds from the sale of the wristbands will go to the DSTA Cpl. Stephen Ballard Memorial Fund. While you are there, you can purchase a $10 50/50 ticket with a chance to win up to $12000. Proceeds from the 50/50 will be donated to the Emerald Society Benevolent Fund for Police Officers. 

Games and Prizes will be at each Restaurant including the possibility of the occasional Guest Bartender or two. Follow the event for details.
