Charity basketball game for law enforcement

Lakewood and Puyallup police officers will play against Puyallup teachers in a charity basketball game Wednesday evening.

The “Cops vs. Teachers” game starts 7 p.m. at Ferrucci Jr. High, 3213 Wildwood Park Dr., Puyallup. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Donations will be taken at the door, and there will be a raffle at half-time. All proceeds from the event will go to the Lakewood and Pierce County Independent Police Guilds.

Ferrucci Jr. High students in the Community Service Builder’s Club organized the game as part of a project to help local law enforcement in the wake of last year’s police officer slayings.

“The tragic events that have unfolded this past October to December continue to affect all of us,” teacher and club adviser Baron Coleman wrote in an e-mail.   “We want to make a difference in the lives of families that continue to place their loved ones in harm’s way every day to protect each of us.”

For more information, call (253) 841-8756.

    This event was a big success! The cops vs teachers event brought out a good crowd. The crowd was in to the game really cheering on both teams with a favorable swing to support their teachers. The Cops did pull it out winning the game 84 to 54 to take home the trophy.
