Raising Money For Crimestoppers

Law enforcement officials and members of the community came together in Washington Friday night to help fight crime. And they did it in a fun way with the Beaufort County Crimestoppers Ball at the Civic Center. The ball was a fundraising event for crimestoppers. Organizers say the event is usually responsible for bringing in as much as half of the reward money to pay for an entire year of crimestoppers. In 2005, Beaufort County Crimestoppers paid out about $12,000 in reward money.
