WHAT: Police Chief William P. McManus and members of the law enforcement community gather at the landmark Tip Top Café to accept the proceeds from late 2016 Texas Chicken Fried Steak promotion held at the original Tip Top Café location on behalf of the 100 Club of San Antonio.
The tragic ambush of Det. Benjamin Marconi (Badge #2382) on the eve of the promotion’s last day resulted in a 3-week extension to focus San Antonio’s well-known charitable heart. Our prayers remain with the Marconi family survivors; a big “shout- out” of THANKS to all citizens for their generous support of our police and first responders.
