Tickets Still Available for the Irish American Police Officers Association Annual $10,000 Drawing
NEWTON — The Irish American Police Officers Association (IAPOA) wishes to remind the public that it will hold its annual $10,000 drawing in December. Tickets are still available!
The drawing will occur on Friday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. at American Legion Post 440, 295 California St., Newton.
Raffle tickets are on sale for $100 each and must be purchased before the drawing. Only 300 tickets will be sold. Participants are invited to attend the drawing, which will feature dinner and a performance from the IAPOA Pipes and Drums.
The drawing is a reverse raffle that will award a $10,000 grand prize, as well as $3,000 in additional cash and other prizes, including a $1,000 prize for the raffle’s runner-up.
The $10,000 drawing is the IAPOA’s primary fundraising source for its Annual Awards Dinner, which honors police officers from throughout the region for their outstanding work and acts of heroism. Officers are recognized for a variety of categories, including investigations, valor, life-saving actions, community service efforts and humanitarian acts. The IAPOA also awards its Medal of Honor to officers who lost their lives in the line of duty during the preceding year.
Those who would like to support the event or purchase a raffle ticket may do so by emailing [email protected]. Credit cards will be accepted as a form of payment. You can learn more about the Association at Irishamericanpolice.org.
