THE BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE® FOUNDATION has given a check for $15,000 -- raised from donations -- to LAURA LONGWAY, widow of HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SHERIFF’s Deputy MARK LONGWAY, who was killed in a TAMPA auto accident on SEPTEMBER 21st. LONGWAY, 48, was the father of two grown children and had recently become a grandfather.
"We all suffer when our community loses a law enforcement officer, but to me, it’s especially important to assist the family that suffers the loss," BUBBA said.
This is the third such contribution that the BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE® FOUNDATION has made this year. On AUGUST 17th, $53,000 in donations was presented to the families of fallen TAMPA Police Officers JEFFREY KOCAB and DAVID CURTIS. In JULY, $45,000 in funds were raised and donated to families of three FLORIDA law enforcement officers who were killed this year in the line of duty.
