Battle of the Shields

Police vs. Fire Fundraiser Basketball Game

On Sunday, February 21, 2010, members of the Sacramento Police and the Fire Departments will face off in the second annual basketball game fundraiser. The game will be played in the gymnasium of Inderkum High School (2500 New Market Drive) and will begin at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for only $5; kids under 5 years old are free! There will be food, drinks, music, games and lots more.  Entertainment is planned for the end of each quarter. 

Proceeds from this fundraiser will go to the Natomas Unified School District.  Come out and cheer on your local officers and firefighters and support the wonderful kids in Natomas.

The Police and Fire Departments are looking forward to a friendly competition on the court while supporting the children in the community.  Given the current status of the economy, this event is a great opportunity for inexpensive, fun, family entertainment and at the same time supporting the local youth.  Come cheer on Sacramento's Finest!
