The BackStoppers Events

Each year the organization benefits from many and varied events held throughout the community. We are deeply grateful for the funds that these affairs generate.

General Meetings

The BackStoppers is not a social organization. We come together specifically to support our mission of assistance to the families of fallen police officers and firefighters. We do, however, host one general meeting each year. At this dinner meeting, we keep our members current on organizational affairs.

  • all members receive invitations to these events
  • the dinners are complimentary to members
  • guests are welcome but are subject to a guest charge
