TIFTON, GA (WALB) - A special thank you on Friday night for first responders who risk their lives to serve and protect us.
You might not expect to see food at a dentist's office, but a Tifton dentist traded in his drill for a burger-flipping spatula.
Doctor Buddy Cawley is the man behind Burgers for the Brave.
"You know it don't get too tough for those guys, whenever duty calls, no matter how tough it is that go right up in there and get the job done so you and I don't have to. And so, I just thought we needed to thank them for it," said Dr. Cawley.
One by one, law enforcers and paramedics pulled up to get a tasty thank you, a grilled burger fresh off the grill and into the hands of the local officers.
"It makes you feel good inside to do something like this and for people to respond to it and they've done it in such a tremendous way," said Dr. Cawley.
It certainly put a smile on Tift County Sheriff Gene Scarbrough's face.
Scarbrough said with all that's happening in the country now, it was perfect timing.
Cawley cooked up 400 burgers.
"Man they all came out and it was a really great day," said Dr. Cawley.
And a great way to say thanks.
Dr. Cawley hopes to turn this into an annual event.
