Hoops game nets $10 grand for charity

KENNEWICK POLICE NEWS RELEASE-- Wednesday night in the "Lion's Den" the Kennewick Police All-Stars defeated the Kennewick Fire All-Stars in the annual charity basketball game.

The game was fun but that is only part of the story.

The real focus of the game is to help those less fortunate in our city. Thanks to the generous donations from our community, the event raised $10,700.

This significantly more than was raised in 2011.

100% of the money donated will be used to sponsor families in need this Christmas in our community.

"Once again the true spirit of the Christmas Holiday comes to light due to the men and women of the Kennewick Police and Fire Departments", said Chief Ken Hohenberg.
