Seen: Derek Donnelly @ Cuts for Cops

When three Saint Petersburg policemen were gunned down in the line of duty, Billy Hume, owner of Billy's Corner Barber Shop, at 2031 4th St. N.,  came up with the idea of a fundraiser for local charities.

Bill "Woo" Correira used to live paint at this event. It was just something he did out of respect for police. Who would do it this year? Derek Donnelly, of Saint Paint Gallery, stepped up to the plate for his deceased friend.

                            And he painted in Woo's honor, an hommage a Woo, a sea turtle.

                                     Note the tattoo on Derek's wrist, a memento to BC Woo.

Congratulations to all involved in this event, a props to Derek Donnelly for rising to the cause of a friend.
