The Depew Police Benevolent Association, a group of Depew police officers, will hold its annual fundraising ball next weekend.
Open to the public, it takes place from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, March 5, at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens, 6461 Transit Road, Lancaster.
The event raises money for area programs. Last year’s ball raised nearly $20,000, which went to 20 local programs, such as providing gifts to needy families during the holidays, scholarships to Depew High School students, the Depew Lancaster Boys & Girl Club, sports and music programs in Depew schools and the Tri-County Food Pantry.
A $10 ticket includes beer, pop, snacks and prizes. Raffles, Chinese auctions and 50/50 splits will be available. Music will be provided by The Urban Renewal Band.
Tickets are available at the door, through any officer or e-mail
