The group tasked with creating a memorial for fallen Galt Officer Kevin Tonn and other local uniformed personnel who may give their lives has chosen a name for itself and set a date for its first official fundraiser.
The Community Heroes Appreciation Memorial Project, or CHAMP, plans to hold a poker run on Oct. 5.
The route will take motorcyclists through the Sacramento River Delta. Additional details will be released soon, according to the group’s Facebook page.
A shooting competition and wine and dine event are also planned for the future.
The memorial’s conceptional design was created by students at Galt High School. It will be erected adjacent to City Hall.
