The Bismarck and Terre Du Lac Police Departments, along with the Terre Du Lac Association, have a benefit planned from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 10 for the family of Officer Adam King who recently died in a car crash.
Terre Du Lac Association General Manager Lori Pope said they have received a plethora of donations for the silent auction which will be held at the indoor pavilion near the Terre Du Lac Country Club.
“We have more than 100 items committed to the fundraiser and everything raised will go to the King family,” said Pope. “There are tons of different gift baskets. Some are for the kids, there is movie and popcorn gift baskets, there’s a dog basket and so many others. I think it is great place to do some Christmas shopping because there is something for everyone.”
Pope added they also a LED lamp/light fixture form Butler Supply and a few different drills from Lowe's and Holekamp Do-It Center.
“We have a so many gift certificates to different places all around the area and someone donated a bunk bed/desk set,” said Pope. “We also got some really neat Under Armour tactical backpack bags that have Under Armour shirts and different things in them. I think the police will be really interested in those, they are pretty neat.”
Pope added they also have a welding helmet from Ozark Gas, a photography setting from a studio, and a couple different places donated loads of top soil and rock and numerous other things.
“We will have chili and hot dogs for sale and someone will be making cupcakes to sell also,” said Pope. “It will be held in the Pavilion Country Club Community Center and it’s not an outdoor pavilion. There will be a ‘Cruise-In’ for anyone who would want to bring their neat old cars up for everyone to enjoy.”
Pope said the more people who can come and help support this and the more they can raise for the family, the better.
“I hope everyone comes out for chili and hot dogs and shops,” said Pope. “It’s all for a great cause.”
They will also be selling raffle tickets for a Remington 870 Express shotgun. Again, the benefit will be held on Dec. 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Pavilion Country Club Community Center in Terre Du Lac across from the Country Club.
