Friends of Law Enforcement
By the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office
On October 5, 2020, The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office hosted the 7th Annual Friends of Law Enforcement Golf Tournament to benefit the Sheriff’s Employee Association and the Lubbock’s Purple Heart Chapter.
The event, held at Lake Ridge Country Club, raised enough money to donate $6,000 that will benefit the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 0900 here in Lubbock.
We are so thankful to Sheriff Kelly Rowe and all those that contributed towards making this year’s golf tournament a success.
The generous donation will be used to support local Veterans in need, as identified by the local Commanders and in coordination with the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office.
Note from the Caprock Patriot: We ask all of Lubbock’s citizens to support our local law enforcement. They sacrifice so very much for us daily. We must, in turn, support them and give back when they are in need. We must also remember to keep them, and their families, in our prayers.
Please be sure to visit the West Texas Regional Monument of Courage located in Huneke Park, on 82nd Street. The “Regional Monument of Courage” was constructed in Lubbock, Texas, to honor and remember 12 Medal of Honor recipients, Purple Heart recipients, and Gold Star families from across the West Texas region.
