Dear Fellow Law Enforcement Supporters...

THOSE OF US WHO LIVE IN DEER PARK & LAPORTE OWE A DEBT OF GRATITUDE TO ALL OF OUR BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN IN BLUE WHO RISK THEIR LIVES TO KEEP OUR CITIES SAFE!

Our Back the Blue BBQ Festival & 5K Fun Run is only days away and we could really use your help! Like everyone else, Covid delayed our start-up earlier this year, and we have not been able to secure the corporate sponsorships our local police officers truly deserve. We still have a need for sponsors, donors, and donations of gift cards & other silent auction items.  We know EVERYONE is asking for your money and support, but I'm asking on behalf of our Deer Park & LaPorte Police Officers who truly do deserve it! Please consider joining our cause to show community-wide support and appreciation for those who risk their lives to keep our cities safe!  This is a non-profit BBQ Festival benefiting our local officers.  All proceeds are used to benefit our Deer Park & LaPorte Police Departments AND OUR AWESOME OFFICERS!  Here are a few of the items we still need help with, as well as some sponsorship opportunities that are still available!  Please let us know if your organization would be willing to help in any way.
