It's A Knock Out: LA DEPUTIES AND OFFICERS BOX FOR CITY OF HOPE
Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department squared off against officers from the Los Angeles Police Department at the 22nd Annual "Fight for Life" benefiting the City of Hope.
Law enforcement, friends, and supporters gathered at Quiet Cannon in Montebello on Friday, November 18, 2016, as men and women of L.A.S.D and L.A.P.D boxed in the ring to help knock out cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses.
The "Fight for Life" has been raising money for cancer research since 1994. At this year's "Fight For Life", $50,000 is expected to be raised to benefit the treatment, research and education programs of City of Hope.
"This proud tradition of generosity will serve as a pillar of hope to those who need it most," said Chief of Police, Charlie Beck. He added, "I applaud the work of the City of Hope, its doctors, staff, and contributors for their fight against cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Their work goes a long way in restoring faith and bettering the community."
