Cindy Roller / KETR/Cooper Review

It could definitely be deemed the largest outpouring of support Delta County has seen in a very long time. The Fried’s Friends Benefit including chili and stew supper and auction held this past Saturday evening in Cooper netted over $27,000 for Game Warden Chris Fried, who has extensive medical expenses following a gunshot wound he sustained while at the Wildlife Management Area in December.

Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014 was proclaimed Chris Fried Day by both Delta County and the City of Cooper.
