Hometown Hero: Cops for K.O.P.S. annual golf tournament

Hometown Hero

Tonight’s hometown heroes hit the golf course for a great cause. 

Cops for K.O.P.S. held its annual golf tournament today with a shotgun start at Sunset Golf Course in Dauphin County, 

The event also featured prizes, a raffle, and food after. 

So many golfers wanted to support the event, the non-profit had to turn some away. 

The money raised will help children of fallen officers. 

“This year we have 4 officers that lost their lives in the line of duty. We have from medical events one that was shot in the line of duty, and a fourth who was a corrections officer with the state and he died from his injuries inside a correctional facility,” said Patrick O’Rourke, Event Founder. 

Hershey Lodge, and its manager Greg Caputo spearhead this fundraiser for the non-profit. 

Last year the event raised $14,000.
