Check PresentationThe Dick Pope / Polk County Chapter of FPRA was proud to host the 2010 Roast & Toast honoring Sheriff Grady Judd. Nearly 300 people attended this great event which was catered by Texas Cattle Company with Catering & More providing the desserts.

The Sheriff was roasted by Channel 8’s Jennifer Leigh, Fox 13’s Ken Suarez, 97 Country’s Roger Todd, Polk County Sheriff Office’s Chief of Staff Gary Hester and the Sheriff’s childhood friend Father Andrew Mallick. The event was emcee’d by “retired” newspaper publisher SL Frisbee.

On the left, a check was presented to the Sheriff’s Youth Villa for $6,000, a portion of the monies raised at the event.

We look forward to making this a bi-annual event!
