MEDIA OPPORTUNITY: Christmas in July! Meet Santa Claus today at 11 a.m. at Stone Creek Golf Course to promote Officer Mulligan charity golf tourney

Date

Officer Mulligan charity golf tournament

"Christmas in July" just got real.

Santa Claus -- yes, Santa Claus-- will be at Stone Creek Golf Course (14603 South Stoneridge Dr., Oregon City, map)  today (Monday, July 1), between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Santa is on the course with some Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies this morning to work on his golf swing -- and he'll also share information with media about a charity golf tournament later this month that raises money for the annual “Shop with a Cop” event. 

The fifth annual "Officer Mulligan" charity golf tournament is set for Friday, July 26, 2019, with a shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. This very special golf tourney features raffle prizes, breakfast and lunch, and raises money for December's "Shop With A Cop" event. Learn more here: https://ccpobf.org/programs/officer-mulligan-charity-golf-tournament.html A flyer is attached.

Proceeds from the tournament go toward "Shop with a Cop" -- in which local law-enforcement officers locate children whose low-income families have had some enforcement contact with police, present those children with $100 gift cards, and then shop with them at the Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart wraps all the gifts for the kids, supplying gift-wrap, ribbon and tags. It's a wonderful opportunity for police and kids to get to know one another.
