Valdosta - A banquet this Friday will honor law enforcers and establish a fund to help them in times of need.

The Rotary Club of Valdosta is holding the first annual law enforcement appreciation dinner.

At the dinner they'll be honoring an officer of the year from both the Valdosta Police Department and Lowndes County Sheriff's Office.

All proceeds raised from the event will be put into a fund to offer assistance to any law enforcer working in Lowndes County who's hurt on the job or needs extra assistance at home.

"When an officer needs assistance, we are proud to be the ones to step forward and say you are appreciated. We are here to show you your appreciated. We are not just saying thanks, we are actually giving support," says James Dominey, President of the Rotary Club of Valdosta.

Tickets are still available for the event, which will take place Friday February 29 at the James H Rainwater Conference Center.

Single tickets are $100.00.  Tables are going for $1,000.

So far, nearly 500 tickets have been sold.
