Golf tournament raises $41,000 for Fallen Officer Fund

The first Douglas County Fallen Officers Fund golf tournament on Aug. 12 raised more than $41,000, according to a news release.

Hosted by Meridian Golf Club, the tournament drew 120 golfers and had 12 sponsors, including gold sponsor Miller's Landing, along with US Foods and John Elway Chevrolet.

Those in attendance were able to see the Doulgas County Mounted Patrol and SWAT vehicles, as well as a 1962 fire truck displayed at the event by Jason Neeley. Among the items that were auctioned were an African safari and a NASCAR race package.

The Douglas County K9 division and other law enforcement agencies participated, and Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock addressed the golfers, thanking them for their participation.

Next year's event is scheduled for Aug. 10.

Money raised provides assistance to Douglas County Sheriff's Office members who are killed or seriously injured in the line of duty. Learn more about the fund at www.dcsheriff.net/fallen-officer-fund/
