Fundraiser in memory of Larry Canfield planned
A dinner-dance will be held on March 6 to raise money for Sacramento County Sheriff's Department personnel to witness the addition of the late Larry Canfield's name on the Fallen Officers Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.
Canfield, a long-time Galt resident, was killed in a motorcycle crash on Nov. 12 while on duty in Rancho Cordova.
Canfield was a sheriff's deputy who served as a motorcycle officer for the Rancho Cordova Police Department. Rancho Cordova contracts with the sheriff's department for police protection.
The dinner-dance will begin at 6:30 p.m. March 6 at the SES Hall, 10428 E. Stockton Blvd., Elk Grove. The event will include cocktails, tri-tip/chicken dinner, silent and live auctions, live music, dancing and raffles.
Tickets are $35, and checks should be made out to WSMOA (Western States Motorcycle Officers Association). For tickets, call Cassie at (916) 549-1798, Scott at (916) 606-0826 or Mike at (916) 606-5526.
Two other fundraisers will be held to finance the Washington trip. One is the Larry Canfield Memorial Golf Tournament on March 27 at Mather Golf Course, and a barbecue with motor officers on April 19 in Rancho Cordova.
