Football Game Between Police, Firemen To Raise Money For Charity

ST. CLOUD — The St. Cloud Fire Department will play the Police Department in a charity flag football game tomorrow (Saturday).

The event will go from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m at Husky Stadium.

Along with the football game, the event features a various activities for the whole family including a bounce house, free chair massages and a K-9 demonstration at halftime.

Jeff Lester of the Fire Department, in a Wednesday interview by WJON’s Kelly Cordes, says he got the idea to put on a football game between the two departments back in January.

“Then I said, ‘we might as well raise some money for charity,’” Lester says.

Somebody suggested to Lester that the proceeds go to local charity, Tanner’s Team, and he agreed.

“It just absolutely fit perfectly,” says Lester.

Tanner’s Team is a foundation that helps families with children who are fighting life-threatening illness or injury.

The event is free to attend.
