Hi Corbett Field
Tucson, AZ: The 6th Annual Cops and Rodders Car Show will again be presented by the Tucson Police Foundation (TPF). Sponsored by the Jim Click Automotive Group and the Pima County Attorney’s Office, the goal is to create a fun event for all ages and to give our community a chance to meet and greet TPD officers. The event will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at Hi Corbett Field.
The Cops & Rodders Car Show will again include a variety of classic and custom cars, trucks, and motorcycles; privately owned classic police and fire vehicles; and current public safety vehicles… over 625 vehicles in total. Children’s activities will include a Pinewood style race, pedal and die-cast model car races, and a Patriotic costume contest. There will be major raffle prizes, food, music and a great time for all with free admission for the public.
Registration for the car show participants is $25.00 and is available online at www.copsandrodderstucson.org or by calling the TPF office at (520) 207-2878. The Foundation is currently recruiting sponsors, vendors and volunteers and information may again found on the website or by calling the office.
The proceeds will go toward helping the Tucson Police Department meet its needs associated with training, education and equipment, and other programs that will help the officers provide better protection to our children and our community.
The Tucson Police Foundation founded in 2003, is an independent, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to fostering public safety through community partnerships to support the Tucson Police Department. The Foundation has provided for life saving equipment, training, and community based safety programs for the benefit of Tucson.
The mission of the Tucson Police Foundation is to: promote greater public safety in the Tucson Community; support crime intervention, prevention and reduction strategies; raise and allocate funds for equipment and projects outside the normal City of Tucson budgeting process; and increase awareness and interaction with the Tucson Police Department.
A Vision for a Safer Tucson
