Various celebrities showed their appreciation to our men and women in uniform at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Police and Fire Fighters Appreciation Day BBQ at the Los Angeles Police Department, LAPD Hollywood Division yesterday, September 11th, located at 1358 N. Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood.
Los Angeles police officers do an excellent job working in harmony with the Hollywood firefighters to effectively keep our streets safe. "A small way that we, as a community, can give back to these local heroes is to offer a fun day of great BBQ, raffle prizes and heartfelt thanks at the Chamber’s 21st annual Police and Firefighters Appreciation Day" - Working cohesively with the Hollywood Chamber this year are Avalon Hollywood and Celebrity Center.
