The Reserve Officers from the Palo Alto County Sheriff's Office and the City of Emmetsburg Police Department will be having a free will donation supper and silent auction on Saturday, Apr. 27, from 5 pm to 7 pm at the VFW in Emmetsburg, All proceeds will go towards training and equipment for the volunteer Reserve Officers.

The free will donation supper will consist of food items that have been donated by various entities around the county. The smoked porkloin (Emmetsburg Fire Dept), the baked beans, cheesy potatoes (Corner stone Pub), salads and desserts (ILCC).

"This is the first Back the Blue Fundraiser we've held in something like three years," Palo Alto County Deputy Ben Morey said.

The Sheriff's Reserves normally apply for a gaming grant, but decided to try something different this year.

"A lot of items have been donated for the silent auction," Officer Trent Nelson from the City of Emmetsburg Police Department said. "I totalled up the gift certificates we have received just from the retailers in Emmetsburg and we have received around $2,000 in gift certificates for the silent auction."

Gift certificates are for a variety of businesses and values.

Other items for the silent auction include: neon "Bud Light" light, antigravity chair, caps coffee mugs, t-shirts, gas can, halogen shop light, a Dewalt compact drill/driver kit, four tickets to an Iowa Wild hockey game, one year family membership to the wellness center, a movie pack from the Riviera Theatre, Winchester SXP Field Compact 20 gauge shotgun, and a lot more.

Enjoy good food and gather with friends, while supporting the Reserve Officers of Emmetsburg and Palo Alto County at the Back the Blue Fundraiser. Saturday, April 27 from 5 pm to 7 pm at the VFW in Emmetsburg.

All proceeds will go towards training and equipment for the Reserve.
