In honor of Police Appreciation Week the Ventura Police Community Foundation and Rumfish y Vino invite the community to a night out to kick off the “We’ve Got Your Back” body armor fundraising campaign. The event will be held on Thursday, May 25 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Rumfish y Vino located at 34 N. Palm Street in Ventura.
The Ventura Police Community Foundation is hosting events throughout the year to raise funds for specialized body armor to protect officers from rifle fire. The protective vests are $350 each. The goal is to equip each police vehicle with two vests to help protect officers during high risk incidents. The community is invited to come and learn about the effort; meet Ventura Police Officers and Ventura Police Community Foundation members and enjoy a night out in Ventura.
There is no cost to attend. A no host happy hour will be available. Reservations are encouraged at 805-339-4317.
