    Crowd Fills Gaslamp Restaurant To Benefit LBPOA Charity Aiming To Help Recovering Officers Yap & Wade

    POA fundraiser Feb. 21/07(Feb. 22, 2007) -- An enthusiastic crowd filled LB's Gaslamp Restaurant (PCH/Loynes) on Wednesday night Feb. 21 for a fundraiser benefiting the LB Police Officers Association's Widows and Orphans fund, aiming to help recovering officers Roy Wade, Jr. and Abe Yap and their families. Officers Wade and Yap were shot and seriously wounded in the line of duty in downtown LB on Dec. 22.

    Gaslamp co-owner Alicia Shelton arranged for proceeds from food and drink specials to benefit the charity...and made doing the right thing delicious. Shortly after midnight, Ms. Shelton estimated that they'd collected a sum approaching $10,000 with over 800 attendees. Ms. Shelton and Gaslamp co-owner Jennifer McDonald deserve credit for arranging this good deed.
