Cops for Kids draw at Rockets game

The Rockets game on Friday night was the site of the annual ball drop in support of Cops for Kids.

The Rockets game on Friday night was the site of the annual ball drop in support of Cops for Kids, and this year was another successful one for the organization. The raffle raised $1,117.50 for Cops for Kids in Golden. The winner, a native of Vancouver Island, decided to donate a portion of her winnings back to Search and Rescue in thanks of their ongoing hard work, and their support of Cops for Kids.

Const. Mike Hull, who helped organize the event, is thankful for the support from the community that Cops for Kids has received, which includes the Rotary Club of Golden, the Rockets, Sobeys, Adam Sheriff, and of course, Brooke.
