  • Police badge
  • Police tattoos
  • Police Bouncy Ball
  • Police Bracelets

and of couse we added some extra candy!

On May 4th 2018, the Charlottesville Police Foundation hosted its annual Cops 4 Kids day at the Boys & Girls Club.  Prior to taking this adorable cop car photo booth to the event, our crew members had a little fun with it.

Mason (Bryan's 3 year old son) couldn't wait to give this game a try either!  Based on cuteness factor, we have determined that Mason is the winner hands down!

Our next Minute to Win it game was called Rapid Fire.  The object is to shoot down as many soda cans as you can using rubber bands.  Sharon and Mike were the first to give this game a go!

Next up in our Card Ninja Minute to Win it game we had Ryan and Bryan!  The breeze that came through during this game made it even more entertaining to watch.

Of course a cookout is not a cookout if you do not have some fun games to play!  Our first game we played was Minute to win it - Card Ninja.  The object of the game is to get as many cards as you can to stick into the watermelon half by throwing them.  Our first 2 competitors were Mike and Ricky!

Ryan studying his shot and taking a stab at winning a free car on one of the Par 3’s at the Marshall L. Watson Memorial tournament at Greene Hills Golf Club. This was the first tournament Ryan was able to participate in with SERVPRO of Charlottesville and neither him or Josh had played at Greene Hills before so they both really enjoyed getting the opportunity to play a new course.
