Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County was planning to hold its annual fundraiser on Sunday, but organizers have postponed it to November 14, due to the forecast rain this weekend.
Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County Inc. President Sherri Cole tells us the 11th Annual "Cruizin' for Crime Stoppers Motorcycle Run" raises money to help solve crimes in our area.
The money brought in from these events is then used in rewards that are offered to anonymous tipsters.
"This year alone we have had almost 3,000 tips regarding crimes in Palm Beach County. So we are a vital organization to law enforcement."
The 2020 motorcycle run was canceled due to the pandemic.
"We're hoping the community steps up this year because last year we paid out a lot in rewards and we weren't able to have a fundraiser. So this is an important ride for us."
On the new date of November 14, the ride starts at Wellington Village Town Hall, kickstands up at 10:30 a.m. Riders, escorted by the PBSO Motors Unit, will take a break at the Pahokee Marina and arrive around 1 p.m. at Abacoa Town Center in Jupiter, where they will enjoy free lunch and live music.
Non-riders can show up $10, which includes lunch. There will also be raffles.
Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County, Inc. is a nonprofit that was formed back in 1981 and has solved more than 9,000 cases and has resulted in over 6,200 arrests.
