2013 Crime Victims' Rights Week Fundraising Barbecue

Thank you to all who donated to, attended, and supported our 7th Annual Crime Victims' Rights Week Fundraising Barbecue! Your generosity made it a huge success! Approximately 400 people attended and over $8,500 was raised for the District Attorney's Emergency Services Fund. This fund assists Washington County victims who have no other means to pay for such things as lock changes, emergency transportation, moving expenses, food vouchers, and other expenses encountered in the aftermath of a crime. 

District Attorney, Bob Hermann, and guest “Grill Masters" successfully kept the lines moving and the crowd well fed.
