The Antioch Police Officers Association announced they received a raffle prize to help them raise funds for upcoming community giveaways this fall with the donation of a firearm.
As part of their upcoming charity Poker Tournament on August 17, Hook Line and Sinker of Oakley have donated a Springfield Armory 1911 A1 .45 caliber valued at $828.00. Meanwhile, Delta Tactical Training Group have offered a 1-day pistol safety and fundamentals training course (valued at $240).
Raffle tickets are $20 each and you DO NOT need to be present to win. You can pay by cash or credit/debit card at the event. On-line, you can go to www.antiochpoa.org and purchase your tickets. All ticket sales will STOP at 8:00 pm the day of the event. The drawing will be at 8:30 p.m. on August 17th, 2019.
Funds from this event will help us host the “Trick or Treat With APD” event which thousands of youths and families attend. It is at this event, officers create a haunted house inside the police department and many officers in different departments are in attendance engaging with youths while handing out gift bags and candy, and enjoy games and even a K9 Demo.
Funding also helps keep their Holiday Food Drive possible as last year they provided 70-families with a complete holiday dinner and other relief. We also helped 13-families with our Adopt-a-Family program which provided a Christmas dinner, Christmas tree along with gifts, clothing, jackets and other items.
None of this is possible without the help of our community who help make these programs possible through their generosity and participation. If you cannot attend the tournament and still want to participate, cash donations and toy donations are always welcome.
Tickets are $65 (or $25 for dinner only) and are limited to the first 150 players. Payouts are provided to the top 3 finishers in the tournament at $500, $300 and $100.
