Tickets are $5 per person.

“There’s a pretty solid history of our folks losing these games against the STRAPS STARS teams,” said Interim Police Chief Bob Klett. “We appreciate the fact that they keep giving us a chance to try again, and we also enjoy helping to raise money for these talented athletes.”

This family-friendly event will include games, a charity raffle and food. Proceeds from the event will go to assist families of athletes with physical disabilities towards traveling expenses and equipment for events.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. To learn more, volunteer time or donate to the raffle, email Detective Corporal Sandra Spriegel at
