A Christmas Celebration With a Police Twist

The Cleveland Police Athletic League (PAL) held its Eighth Annual Christmas Party on December 1st at the Public Auditorium with the Cleveland Police Foundation a proud supporter of this event. PAL invited children from all neighborhoods around the City of Cleveland to take part in games, train rides, a bouncy house, and a visit with Santa. Everyone received a Christmas present!

A big thanks goes out to retired Sergeant Bob Kumazec from PAL and all the CPD officers that volunteered to help make this event a success. Also to Niko Frangos from Rascal House for providing the pizza and more! Oh yes, and thank you Santa for attending and making sure the children had an opportunity to speak with you! They all left with broad smiles on their faces!
