Support Officer Fundraiser Report

Another successful event for the wonderful Support Officer organization. This year's fundraiser raised close to $9,000 that will be used to assist families in our community that are going through loss and trauma. We've continuously been able to beat previous years' totals and this year is no different! Thanks to everyone who helped make the 5th annual fundraiser such a great success, from those who attended the dinner, to those that donated and helped serve the dinner. We had representatives from the U.S. Border Patrol, Bellingham Police Department, Whatcom County Sheriff's Office, Ferndale Police Department, Western Washington University Police, Whatcom District 7 Fire Department, North Whatcom Fire & Rescue Service, Washington State Patrol and Support Officer Community Care.
