The Escondido Police Athletic League (PAL) is hosting its 9th annual basketball fundraising game on August 11, 2018, at Escondido’s East Valley Community Center located at 2245 E. Valley Parkway. This year PAL is honoring former PAL leader Sgt. Geoff Galindo. Sgt. Galindo was an outstanding PAL leader who died unexpectedly 10 years ago. The event kicks off at 12:00 p.m. with a display by members of the Escondido Swat Team. The game pits police officers and PAL coaches against a team of local teens who play in the PAL/ Recreation Basketball League. There will be great raffle prizes and concessions provided by Mike’s BBQ. During halftime there will be a police K-9 demonstration.

All proceeds support PAL, an after-school athletic and education program for Escondido children and teens. PAL benefits approximately 700 youths during the year. PAL’s mission is to work with children to build their confidence and steer them away from alcohol, drugs and gangs.

Tickets are $5 and are available at the Escondido Police and Fire Headquarters, 1163 N. Centre City Parkway, the East Valley Community Center and at the event. If you wish to support PAL programs, but are unable to attend the game, you can purchase tickets and donate them to local children. To donate tickets, please contact retired Lt. Al Owens at aowens@escondido.org.
