March 20, 2014 - ECHL (ECHL) - Stockton Thunder
Stockton, Calif. - The Stockton Thunder, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL's New York Islanders and AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers, have partnered with the San Joaquin County Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation to bring fans the Law & Order Night Car Show.
The Car Show on Saturday, March 22nd is a part of the Thunder's Law & Order night where the team salutes the brave men and women who protect and serve our community. Emergency responders, lawyers, judges, and others who serve our community will be in attendance with a portion of ticket sales benefitting the San Joaquin County Law Enforcement Memorial in their hopes towards building a new monument that will be large enough to recognize all fallen officers.
In addition to a portion of ticket sales, law enforcement officials will be selling glow sticks for $1 that fans can use during the video tribute to fallen law enforcement officials. Fans can purchase those glow sticks at tables near both the North and South Entry's.
Stockton Police Sentinels will be on hand to show fans cars from the California Highway Patrol, Stockton Police Department, San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office, Lodi Police Department, University of the Pacific Police Department and San Joaquin Delta College Police Department. The car show will end a half hour before the game is set to start at 7:00 p.m.
