The Hesperia Citizens on Patrol and Hesperia Police Activities League received $800 each for their programs from a Hawaiian luau fundraiser held Sept. 10.


Hawaiian dancers from Na Pua Lei Ohana (cherished family in Hawaiian) performed for the crowd at the Hesperia Lake Equestrian Area. Roxanne Walker from the Hesperia sheriff's station even entertained the crowd with a dance as those in attendance participated in raffles and dined.


From the funds raised, the COPs will purchase uniforms and help various other projects, according to Commander Don Trotter.


The PAL proceeds will go towards PAL equipment, water and additional expenses of running the program, COP Sandy Kocherhans added.


For more information on either program, call Sgt. Linzy Savage at (760) 947-1511.
