Tony Nihells of Swansea and Tony Hill of Belleville were thrilled to be a part of a benefit lunch put on by the O’Fallon Police Department and Texas Roadhouse for the Special Olympics Illinois and the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois. This is the eighth year that the event has taken place, and it is something that all of the local police officers and law enforcement look forward to.

During this benefit luncheon, Texas Roadhouse served a free lunch including a pulled pork sandwich, corn, fresh baked bread and a non-alcoholic beverage in exchange for a donation, with 100 percent of the proceeds given to Special Olympics Illinois.
