The Gallatin Police Department held its annual Santa Classic golf tournament on Saturday, November 12, 2016. This event was co-sponsored by Long Hollow Golf Course and the Gallatin Fire Department. Close to $7000 was raised with this year’s tournament. Proceeds from this event benefit the Shop with a Cop program held each year at Wal-Mart where 100-125 children from disadvantaged situations will be assigned to a police officer or fire fighter and allowed to shop for Christmas presents. In Addition to helping these children, our local veterans and nursing home residents without families are also given gifts to make the holidays a little more joyful. Chief Don Bandy would like to thank the many businesses and citizens whose donations of time and money help make this event a success. We would especially like to recognize Western Reflections for their generous contributions and for their continued support each year. We would like to recognize the following for their contributions to the success of this year’s fundraiser:

We invite all interested members of our community to consider helping us serve those less fortunate by making a contribution to this program and to come enjoy volunteering as we take these children shopping in December. If you would like to make a contribution, you may contact Lt. Lamar Ballard at 452-1313.
