$12,000 Donation by First Responders to UMC Pediatric Unit

The Marana Police Department Volunteer Foundation will be presenting a check for $12,377.07 to the Pediatric Unit at Banner University Medical Center-Tucson on Wednesday, December 21st at 10:00 a.m.  This donation was made possible from the money that was raised during the Pride for the Patch Golf Tournament

In addition to the donation, first responders from agencies across Southern Arizona will fill the roundabout in front of the Children’s Diamond Center at Banner UMC.  Emergency vehicles will simultaneously activate their lights and provide an overwhelming display of red and blue when the children come down.  First responders are hoping to help make this a magical and unforgettable Christmas for all the sick and injured children at Banner UMC.

The Marana Police Volunteer Foundation hosted their inaugural Golf Tournament Fundraiser, Pride for the Patch, on December 3, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain.  The “Pride for the Patch” was initiated for citizens to join forces with Law Enforcement, Fire Departments, Corrections, and Military to give back to the community.  The event was an overwhelming success and the money raised will have a tremendous impact in the lives of these children.
