Help officers raise money for kids!

StBaldricks.jpg   You can help officers raise money for a worthy cause! St. Baldrick's is an annual event that raise funds to help researchers combat childhood cancer. Participants have their heads shaved to show support for children battling various types of cancer.

   This years event will once again be held at the Knitting Factory in Boise on 3-9-13 starting at 11:00. For the 7th year in a row, our BPD team is Boise's Finest which can be accessed and donated to by going to http://www.stbaldricks.org/teams/mypage/81988/2013

People can choose from 12 team members to donate to or they can donate to the team as a whole. However, there is also a Boise's Finest -San Antonio,TX. It needs to be mentioned that it exists because our team captain, Ofc. Jim Adams, has to be in San Antonio for work so he's joining the St. Baldrick's event there which is held at the same time. Folks can donate to either but to keep the funds raised local, Boise's Finest is the best option. Jim will be raising funds while in TX.
