The Missouri City Police and Fire Auxiliary’s 25th annual fund-raiser was a big success. The March 4 event that included a dinner, dance, live entertainment and live and silent auctions brought in approximately $16,000 to help the police and fire departments purchase additional safety equipment. During the past 16 years, the auxiliary has raised approximately $370,000 at the annual events.

In past years, the fundraiser has helped the departments with necessary crime-fighting apparatus as well as fire truck headsets that allow firefighters to talk to one another or to dispatch when they are en route to an emergency.

“We appreciate the efforts of the auxiliary each year,” said Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald. “The funds raised by this organization allow the Police Department and Fire & Rescue Service to enhance the safety of all residents by purchasing equipment outside the budgeted amount for the departments, that otherwise would not be available to us.”

The members of the Police and Fire Auxiliary are all graduates of Missouri City’s Police and Fire Academy, and generously donate their time and talents to the annual fundraiser. This year, the free, 6-week academy that is open to residents, starts on April 12.
