Chevyland in Shreveport is hoping to raise thousands of dollars at an upcoming event for Caddo and Bossier Parish Crime Stoppers.
The fundraiser entitled, "Respect those who Protect" is happening tomorrow (Saturday, November 19th) at Chevyland located at 7500 Youree Drive in Shreveport.
Doors open at 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. There will be door prizes, food, live music, and activities for kids.
"The main goal is for us to show our appreciation to our first responders-- police, fire, medical, and our military personnel for the job that they do," said Jim Taliaferro of Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers
Chevyland General Sales Manager Bubba Winningham says it should be a lot of fun for the entire family.
"Just a good ole throwback Saturday where people can come and eat, play on hoppers, look at really cool cars and neat equipment from Sheriff, Police, and Fire Departments, and really just having the opportunity to say thank you to people as they come in who are first responders," said Winningham.
A custom AR-15 rifle valued at $2,600 will be raffled off in hopes of raising ten thousand dollars for Crime Stoppers.
Raffle tickets are available for $20 at Shreveport Tactical on Flournoy Lucas Road, or you can contact Sgt. B. Huckaby (318-465-5864) or Detective N. Schaefer (318-422-3252) with the Bossier City Police Department. The drawing will be held on December 24, 2016 at Chevyland in Shreveport.
