Dalton Police and Fire Departments to Host 3rd Annual Scholarship Dinner

DALTON, GA. (WRCB)-- The Dalton Police Department and Dalton Fire Department will host a fundraiser dinner on Monday, August 16th at the Dalton Depot Restaurant to benefit the City of Dalton Public Safety Scholarship Endowment at Dalton State College. 

Tickets for the event cost $10 each, and can be purchased at the Police Services Center at 301 Jones Street or from any Dalton Police Officer for Firefighter.  The dinner, which runs from 5:00-9:00 PM, will feature a steak dinner with scalloped potatoes and a Greek salad.  Curbside take-away will be available, or guests are welcome to dine in at the Depot.

This is the third year that the city's Fire Department and Police Department have hosted this event. 

The City of Dalton Public Safety Scholarship is part of the Dalton State College Foundation's scholarship program, an annual offering of scholarship awards recognizing academic achievement and financial need for students at Dalton State College.  The scholarship will benefit dependents of Dalton Police or Fire employees, or the dependents of retired DPD and DFD employees. 

A six-member committee (three each from the Fire Department and the Police Department) determined the selection criteria for the scholarship.  The scholarship is managed by the DSC Foundation, which makes all decisions regarding selection of the scholarship recipient. The Dalton State College Foundation awards more than $150,000 in scholarships every year.
