Leesburg, GA (WALB) -Law enforcement officials in Lee County got a little messy to raise money for a special cause Saturday.

People pied Lee County Sheriff's Deputies in the face and they got to play dunk a cop at a fundraiser to raise money for Georgia's Special Olympics.

The event included carnival games, a silent auction, food and more.

"It's costs more than $1million to organize the Special Olympics of Georgia and the sheriff's department and other people of Georgia are the main people to raise funds for this," said Community Relations Organizer Daphne Lindsey.

The Special Olympics summer games start at the end of this month in Atlanta.
