Richmond Copwatch is holding its first ever fundraiser next Saturday October 1st.Please come out so we can raise funds to buy new cameras and other necessary equipment.
It will be a Smash-a-que – which means we will be asking for donations for people to take swings at a “Richmond Cop Car Number 187″. We will provide safety goggles and gloves, and a sledgehammer with which to take swings at the cop car. We are asking for a 5 dollar donation per swing, with a larger donation for parts of the car like the windshield.
We will be holding the Smash-A-Que at the corner of West Graham and North Avenue, next door to the Goal Post and across the street from the North Avenue Market. We will start at 5pm, and keep going until that car is crushed.
Food will be sold next door at the Goal Post Restaurant during our event. We encourage people to support a local business and buy some food from Ms. Dot.
We will also be projecting the film These Streets Are Watching, which is about Copwatch organizations across the country. We will have a table with literature about Copwatch in Richmond and how to get involved.
