100 Club gets $12K boost from Fallen Heroes Golf Tournament
COTTONWOOD -- Tuesday, the Cottonwood Fire and Medical Department along with the Cottonwood Police presented a check to the 100 Club of Arizona for $12,612.15. The 100 Club of Arizona is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to the families of police officers and firefighters who are killed or injured in the line of duty, provides financial assistance to public safety agencies who need help purchasing safety equipment, provides the children and spouses of public safety personnel with scholarships for college and provides other financial help to public safety agencies.
The funds provided to the 100 Club were raised at the 4th Annual "Fallen Heroes Golf Tournament" held on April 30 at the Verde Santa Fe Golf Course. This annual golf tournament is put on by members of the Cottonwood Police and Fire & Medical Departments. Tournament participants not only played a round of golf, they also participated in a gun raffle, a general raffle with great prizes and a live auction with autographed items from Arizona professional sports teams. Each year since the golf tournament started, the money raised has increased making this year's event the biggest to date. This fund raiser was a project of the Cottonwood "Law Enforcement Heroes" (http://lawenforcementheroes.wix.com/lawenforcementheroes) a 501(c)(3) organization with the purpose of supporting local community outreach programs, supporting public safety causes, and purchasing non-budgeted technology and equipment for the Cottonwood Police and Fire & Medical Departments.
The Fallen Heroes Golf Tournament Committee would like to thank all the businesses and organizations who donated products and/or money to help make this event such a great success.
