On Sunday, November 13th the Woonsocket Police Department invites you to bowl to help raise funds for COPSWALK.  The family-friendly bowling tournament will begin at 2pm at Walnut Hill Bowl on Diamond Hill Road in Woonsocket.  Get registered before-hand beginning at 1pm.

Officer Justin Ryel tells THE LAKE 940, “COPSWALK is a charity organization that works to raise money for families of fallen police officers.”  In Woonsocket, there are about 15 officers who are on the COPSWALK team.  Each year they hold a 400-mile, around-the-clock, relay-style run from Rhode Island to Washington, DC.  That will take place in May 2023.

Tickets for the bowling tournament will be sold at the door, cost is $30 for adults, $20 for children.  Each ticket includes a beer for the adults, and pizza for everyone.
