(3/14/19) A fundraiser is being held for a Monroe Police Officer who was injured in the line of duty.

Monroe Police Officer Ezzard Burton was severely injured in January 2019. Burton has had to undergo major surgery for the injury, and is currently in the process of going through physical therapy so that he can return 100% to the job that he loves.

The public is asked to come out and help support one of Monroe’s finest by taking your family out to eat some of the best seafood in Louisiana.

The fundraising event will be held at Catfish Charlie’s 2329 Louisville Ave, Monroe, Thursday March 21st from 11:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.

On the day of the event Catfish Charlie’s will donate 25% of all pre-taxed food sales (less tips) from any guest that presents the fundraising ticket. 

These proceeds will go towards Officer Burton and his family helping to offset expenses they’ve incurred as he continues to travel down his road to recovery.

Tickets for this event are free, and can be picked up at the Monroe Police station located at 700 Wood St, Monroe, La, or the Public Safety Center located at 1810 MLK JR Dr, suite B Monroe, La.

Tickets will not be handed out at the restaurant on the day of the event.
