Police Officers and Firefighters to Compete in Charity Basketball Game
On Friday, May 1, 2015, the South Dakota Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #1 will partner with the International Association of Firefighters Local #814 in hosting the first annual City of Sioux Falls Police versus Fire charity basketball game held at the Whittier Middle School Gym located at 930 East Sixth Street in Sioux Falls.
The games will feature players from the local police and fire unions to raise money for local charities through a free will donation.
The South Dakota Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #1 will play on behalf of the Family Visitation Center while the International Association of Firefighters Local #814 will play on behalf of the Saint Florian Fire and Burn Foundation.
Besides the on-court entertainment, the flags will be presented by a color guard featuring Honor Guard members from the Sioux Falls Police Department and Sioux Falls Fire/Rescue, a local student will sing the National Anthem, and half-time entertainment will be provided by Midwest Dance Center.
The public is invited to attend to help raise funds for the worthy causes, create awareness for their organizations, and to also see some of the community's first responders outside their normal work environment.
