WHITE MARSH, Md. — Food trucks lined up at White Marsh Volunteer Company on Tuesday as they partnered with the Baltimore County Police Department to raise money for the Special Olympics.

Attendees got to pick from seven different food trucks, enjoyed live music and played games. The event benefits the more than 8,000 Maryland athletes that participate.

"Kids see law enforcement and they look up to them," said Tyler Rivers, President of White Marsh Volunteer Company. "It creates a bond and it raises money for the sports equipment, it goes towards their lunches, the different programs that they have, new jerseys and new uniforms"

50 percent of the proceeds from Tuesday's event will go towards the Special Olympics.
