Eagles touchdowns did more than lead Philadelphia to a Super Bowl championship. Their five TDs in their 41-33 win also raised money for the Atlantic City Police Foundation.
“Tito’s Vodka agreed for every touchdown the Eagles scored in the Super Bowl, they would donate $1,000,” said Brian Miranda, co-owner of the Wonder Bar in Atlantic City. “Then the Wonder Bar itself matched with $1,000, and me and my partner Gina (Rando) also contributed another thousand,” for a total of $7,000.
The money will go toward the purchase and training of two police dogs to work on the patrol and narcotics forces.
The dogs — Ghost and Chase — were at the Wonder Bar on Tuesday afternoon during the check presentation.
“All we can say is thank you,” Atlantic City Police Foundation board member Anthony Romano said. “Now, more than ever, every dollar we have goes toward police and the K-9 unit specifically. The dogs are going to be out on the streets, working with our officers every day.”
