Macy, Martin Lawrence, Tim Allen and director Walt Becker took time from promoting Wild Hogs, a new film about middle-aged friends who decide to take a motorcycle trip, to pay tribute to Boston motorcycle officers.
"It is wonderful to be here with this talented cast and director who have taken time from promoting their film to honor Boston's motorcycle officers. These brave men and women protect our city every day." Mayor Menino said. "I want to thank Wild Hogs for their generous donation to the Boston Police Foundation and Crime Stoppers."
Mayor Menino was joined by Police Commissioner Ed Davis and the Mobile Operations Patrol Unit Deputy Superintendent Thomas Lee to receive the $10,000 donation to the Boston Police Foundation and Crime Stoppers. Mayor Menino proclaimed today "Wild Hogs Day" in the City of Boston.
