Littleton Police to Host Cornhole Tournament to Benefit K-9 Foundation, Invite Residents to Participate
LITTLETON — Chief Matthew King announces that the Littleton Police Department is hosting a cornhole tournament this weekend to benefit their K-9 Foundation and invites the community to participate for a chance to win big while supporting a local charity.
Money raised from the event will benefit the Littleton Police K-9 Foundation to fund training and equipment for Patrolman Brian Casey and his partner K-9 Vojak.
The winning team will receive a three-day trip for four to Las Vegas with airfare and hotel included.
“This is a great opportunity for residents to come out for some friendly competition,” Chief King said. “The money raised will help us ensure our K-9 unit continuously receives the training and equipment needed to support and protect our community.”
Saturday, Feb. 27 at 5 p.m.
The Billards Cafe, 39 Main St., Ayer
Residents interested in participating should break up into teams of two. The entry fee for each pair is $59.
Spectators will be asked to make a $10 donation at the door.
Food will be supplied by Mickey Murphy’s No Bail BBQ and music and raffle prizes will be provided.
The goal of the tournament, beyond bringing the community together for a fun evening out, is to ensure the K-9 program remains a sustainable entity of the Littleton Police Department.
Last year the department secured a $25,000 grant through the Stanton Foundation to support the first three years of the K-9 program.
Through the Littleton Police K-9 Foundation, a registered nonprofit, police will be able to use the money raised to fund annual training (twice a month patrol courses and once a month drug classes) for Officer Casey and K-9 Vojak, equipment, vet expenses, toys, rewards, food, cruiser maintenance and more.
Those interested in registering for the tournament should contact Officer Casey at [email protected] or visit Billiards Cafe.
