Want to enjoy pasta and pizza absolutely guilt-free? The Gaithersburg Police Foundation is hosting its first Pasta for Police event at a popular local Italian restaurant.

Mamma Lucia in the Fallsgrove Center will donate a 20 percent of its sales to the police foundtation, which helps support the police department with items that fall outside its operating budget, such as K9 training gear, a new thermal imaging device to help find missing persons or fleeing suspects, and the Shop with a Cop event to benefit at-risk Gaithersburg children.

So whether you dine-in or pick-up, your Mamma Lucia dining dollars on April 9 will help support local police officers.

The restaurant is located at 14921 Shady Grove Road and the event runs from 5 to 10 p.m.

Formed as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in January, 2008, the Gaithersburg Police Foundation seeks to support the Gaithersburg Police Department with its mission to provide quality services to the residents of Gaithersburg.  The foundation raises money to offer educational opportunities for the police department staff, enhances recruitment and retention of officers, provides logistical support to officers, provides technology assistance, and helps to finance community outreach initiatives. 

For more information contact Chris O’Brien, Gaithersburg Police Foundation Chairperson, at gaithersburgpf@gmail.com or visit www.gaithersburgmd.gov.
