Join us on Saturday, December 1, 2012 at the beautiful Fort DeSoto Park for our annual “Ride & Run With The Stars”. The “Ride” is a holiday fundraiser to benefit families, children, and victims of crime through the Sheriff’s Christmas Sharing Project.
The “Ride” has become one of the largest holiday fundraisers organized by law enforcement in the Tampa Bay area. Since 1993, the event has raised over $500,000 and assisted hundreds of families and thousands of children during the holiday season and throughout the rest of the year.
Your participation will go a long way towards making the holidays possible for those who would otherwise experience hardship and desperation. On behalf of all of us at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, thank you for supporting our Christmas Sharing Project, and the many deserving children and families it serves.
