LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - In one week, Lexington County Sheriff’s Department deputies and Irmo Fire District firefighters in cooperation with the Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation will raise money for the Jeffrey Chavis House by serving meals to customers between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Thursday, August 1 at Romano’s Macaroni Grill at 148 Harbison Boulevard near Irmo.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said deputies and firefighters will donate all tips and donations that they receive to support the Jeffrey Chavis House, a 40-bed guest house that serves relatives of patients at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital of Augusta in Augusta, Ga. The house is named in memory of Jeffrey Chavis, a Lexington County Fire Service firefighter who died as a result of burns that he suffered while fighting a residential fire.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill will donate 15 percent of the bill, excluding tax and gratuity, owed by patrons who eat at the restaurant on Thursday, August 1 and present a flyer on the fund raiser, Metts said. All proceeds from the fund raiser will benefit the Jeffrey Chavis House.

Sgt. Jeff Weed will coordinate the participation of the Sheriff’s Department in the fund raiser for the Jeffrey Chavis House, Metts said. Citizens who have questions concerning the fund raiser can contact Weed on his cellular telephone at (803) 234-1308.

The participation of the Sheriff’s Department in the fund raiser for the Jeffrey Chavis House reflects the agency’s mission of providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County, Metts said.
