Pizzeria teams with local organization for fundraiser

The Branson Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association joined forces with a local restaurant for a recent fundraiser.


PaPPo's Pizzeria and Pub was the site of the BCPAAA's most recent fundraising event.


Supporters of the BCPAAA and pizza lovers gathered to help the organization raise funds for a very worthwhile cause.


"We are a group of people who have graduated from the Citizens Police Academy, where you learn about every aspect of the Police Department," explained BCPAAA's Karen Oswald. "Our purpose is to raise money for the Branson Police Department for things that are not in their budget."


Of PaPPo's Pizzeria and Pub, Oswald said, "It's a great place. They are extremely community minded. They have opened their doors and they gave us a percentage of the proceeds from sales."


Oswald noted that the organization will work with the police department on how best to use the money raised from this fundraiser and upcoming events. A portion of the money raised helps to pay for the police department's annual awards banquet.


"The good thing about the awards banquet is they do Peer-to-Peer awards," Oswald explained. "So, they honor their fellow officers and staff members for exceptional work. We are honored to provide for that once a year."


The BCPAAA has several upcoming fundraisers scheduled for the remainder of 2024, including an event at Petco in May, and another at Branson's Country Mart in June.


Nearly $1,000 was raised at the April event.
