Winter Haven Police Explorer BBQ Fundraiser

Posted June 13th, 2023

Here’s a great way to enjoy some awesome BBQ and support the Winter Haven Police Explorers!

We have tickets for excellent Blackburn’s BBQ in Eagle Lake on sale to help support the activities of our Explorer Post. On Saturday, August 5, 2023 from 11 am – 2 pm, the BBQ can be picked up at Blackburn’s (169 5th St in Eagle Lake). Tickets can be purchased in the lobby of the Winter Haven Police Department, located at 125 N. Lake Silver Dr., NW in Winter Haven or at the Winter Haven PBA¬† Kickball Event on July 22, 2023 at the Diamondplex from 9 am – 3 pm.

Explorers are youth ages 14 – 21 who work alongside Department members at events, train in law enforcement procedures and learn everything there is to know about a career should they choose. The most important thing Explorers learn is Teamwork and Leadership! They compete against other Explorer Posts across the State. And there is no cost to the families!

This fundraiser will help with the expenses to ensure our Explorer Post continues to be one of the best Posts in the State! For more information, contact Detective Ragusa at 863-291-5694.
