Crime Stoppers fundraiser to be 'starry' affair

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - You can pick up some celebrity memorabilia and help out a great cause this weekend.

A Pink Floyd album, a James Bond poster and a Ringo Starr drum head will all be up for auction this Saturday as part of the Cops, Robbers and Superheroes fundraiser for the Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers.

There are 13 authenticated celebrity items up for bid, among other things. All the money raised will help keep Crime Stoppers running year round.

"Runs about $20,000 to $25,000 a year for rewards. Just making sure the phones are on and everything else so an event like this is really essential to keep the lights on, keep the phones running and being able to pay those rewards when people call in and want them," said Law Enforcement Coordinator Mike Blatman.

The event will be held at Tagaris Winery on Saturday night from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. There are still tickets available. It's $50 a person and you can get yours by calling 582-1351.
