HCPOA thanks benefit donors, volunteers and participants

To the Editor:

The Hamilton County Peace Officers Association would like to express our sincere appreciation and thanks to all of the businesses and individuals who supported us in making our 2014 Golf Benefit a huge success.

This was the third annual Benefit Golf Tournament. Our organization plans to continue holding these benefit golf tournaments for a law enforcement, firefighter or military family who has suffered a tragic event during the previous year. This year, the benefit was held for Mandy Buenting and her children Ethan and Kaylie. Her husband and the children’s father,?Rockwell City Police Officer Jamie Buenting, was shot and killed in the line of duty in September 2013. The turnout and show of support this year was unbelieveable.

A special thanks goes to the following sponsors:
