DUNWOODY, Ga. — Dunwoody business owner Huw Thomas of The Dunwoody Restaurant Group presented a $1,500 donation to the Dunwoody Police Foundation on Jan. 16.

The check represents proceeds from the Dec. 19 “Cheers for Charity” event held at The Duke in Dunwoody. Thomas hosted the event to honor retiring Mayor Denis Shortal and thank him for his many years of dedicated service to the Dunwoody community.

Shortal served as celebrity bartender for a packed house, where eager fans of the retiring mayor gathered to honor him and show their appreciation.

Shortal also had the honor of choosing a charitable organization as the beneficiary of the night’s festivities, naming The Dunwoody Police Foundation, which supports the department and its personnel.

“I applaud their goal of enlisting broad community support in helping to provide for the next decade of excellence in policing in our community,” Shortal said.

The Dunwoody Restaurant Group, founded in 1996 in Dunwoody, is a leading pub company in Atlanta, with nine locations. For more information, visit dunwoodyrestaurantgroup.com
