The NEMLEC Police Foundation Golf Tournament is held each year to raise money to benefit the 61 law enforcement agencies in the NEMLEC communities. Since the first tournament in 2004, the foundation has raised just under $500,000 to fund trainings that keep NEMLEC officers and its units current on changing issues that affect communities, such as school violence with the School Threat Assessment and Response System (STARS) training.
Additionally, the NEMLEC Police Foundation has donated more than $70,000 to charitable organizations. A portion of this year’s proceeds will be donated to Cops for Kids With Cancer.
As part of the tournament this year, the NEMLEC Police Foundation will honor Mario Oliveira, a retired Somerville Police detective who was shot multiple times while serving an arrest warrant in Somerville in 2010. Since surviving his injuries, Oliveira has co-founded the Violently Injured Police Officers (VIPO) organization to support other law enforcement members who have been seriously injured or have had to use deadly force in the line of duty.
The tournament fee is $150 per golfer and includes a gift, lunch and a buffet dinner following the tournament. Click here to download the event brochure and registration form.
The dinner will also feature a raffle and silent auction. Those who wish to donate raffle or auction items can do so by contacting Sharon Crowley at [email protected].
Sponsorship opportunities are also available. For more information and a sponsorship form, click here.
