Benefit lands cops on Harley dealer’s roof for 24 hours

Wilkins Harley-Davidson will lend an assist during a benefit for the Vermont Special Olympics by allowing a pair law enforcement officials to take over the dealership’s rooftop for 24 hours.

Montpelier police chief Tony Facos and Washington County sheriff Sam Hill will be on the rooftop from noon Friday, July 19 to noon Saturday, July 20. A local crane service will be onsite to place comfortable recliners, a portable toilet and beds upon the roof to ensure they have everything they need for the duration of the 24 hours.

Wilkins Harley-Davidson will host a variety of events during the fundraiser. A Models and Throttles Harley-Davidson Fashion Show featuring new clothing and riding gear will be held Friday at dusk. Saturday at noon, a Hot Dog Eating Contest will be held to celebrate the return of Facos and Hill from the rooftop.
