Boots vs Badges Fundraiser
July 29, 2017, 11:00 AM - August 6, 2017, 2:00 PM (CST)
A series of 3 back-to-back slow-pitch softball games beginning at 11 AM will raise money for the Burlington Police Department’s K-9 unit. A friendly rivalry between teams including members of every police and fire department in Des Moines County, along with MedForce employees and Des Com dispatchers, will vie for the win. There will also be a silent auction and a gun raffle. A K-9 demonstration will be held between games 2 and 3 and a MedForce helicopter will land on the field before the first game to deliver game balls to the umpires. The public can get a close-up look at the helicopter and other emergency vehicles during and after the games. The first 100 children will receive a “goody bag full of fun stuff”. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the BPD or the West Burlington Fire Dept. $5 per person, $10 per gun raffle ticket.
