Team Monmouth County – comprised of officers from Lake Como, Belmar, Spring Lake, Spring Lake Heights, Avon, Bradley Beach, Neptune City, Neptune Township, Department of Corrections, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, the FBI, Fair Haven, Colts Neck and Wall Township – is scheduled to hold a fundraiser on March 9 at Bar Anticipation, 703 16th Ave. in Lake Como.
The event, running from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., will feature a buffet, raffles and a gift auction and live music by the Joe Baracata Band. Domestic drafts available for $2 and bottles for $2.50.
Tickets are $30 in advance and available at any of the above agencies or $35 at the door.
The four-day, 300-mile Police Unity Tour, first organized in 1997 by a Florham Park officer, is aimed at raising awareness of the officers who have died in the line of duty and raise money and awareness of the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial, Memorial Fund and Museum located in Washington D.C.
The annual tour has raised more than $12 million since its inception.
