Vittles for Vests, Aug. 26, 4-7 p.m., Garden of the Gods Club, facebook.com/PoliceFoundationofColoradoSprings.
ops have dangerous jobs, as evidenced by the recent shooting that left Colorado Springs Police Officer Cem Duzel in critical condition
(now upgraded to serious condition). The Police Foundation of Colorado Springs
wants to make it a little safer out there for the soon-to-be graduates of CSPD’s police academy by purchasing tactical vests for the whole graduating class. They need your help to make it happen, but luckily it’s easy to contribute. All you have to do to assist in the effort: Enjoy food prepared by chefs from local restaurants, and wine offered by several wine vendors.
