Wintzell’s Oyster House in Saraland held a fundraiser for Officer Jackie Tucker on Tuesday.
Officer Tucker was shot while responding to a house call on December 21st, 2016. She remains hospitalized at USA Medical Center and is in critical but stable condition.
Officer Tucker is a Saraland Police Officer, mother, and wife. She has a long road of recovery ahead of her– one of the many reasons the community wanted to ban together and raise money to help her family.
10 percent of all of Wintzell’s sales Tuesday went directly to Officer Tucker and her family.
The restaurant was packed all day long. The lunch hour and dinner hour each brought in hundreds of patrons. Several people walked in just to drop off a donation.
The fundraiser ended at 10 p.m. when Wintzell’s closed its door and at last count the restaurant raised over $1000 for Officer Tucker.
We will update the number once an official count has been made.
