Residents can show their support for Missouri City’s Finest and Bravest at the annual Police & Fire Auxiliary Annual Fundraiser on Friday, March 30 from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. in the Community Center.Tickets are $15 and include dinner, live and silent auctions and entertainment. For details and sponsorship information, call 281-835-0154 or 281-261-0705.
Funds from the event will be used to purchase additional equipment for police officers and firefighters, allowing them to better serve Missouri City citizens. In past years, fundraiser proceeds have been used for a new SWAT van, a Utility Terrain Vehicle and fire truck headsets that allow firefighters to talk to one another or to dispatch when they are en route to an emergency.
During the past 16 years, the auxiliary has raised approximately $370,000. Members of the organization are all graduates of Missouri City’s Police and Fire Academy, and generously donate their time and talents to the annual fundraiser. The Academy is a free, six-week program that offers a “behind-the-scenes” view of the dangers firefighters and police officers face on the job. The next class will start on April 2; interested individuals can call 281-403-8705.
