July 14, 2016 at 12:26 PM (PT)
ALPHA MEDIA News/Talk KXL (FM NEWS 101)/PORTLAND's LARS LARSON is partnering with LEADER CAPITAL and prominent local businessman HARRY MERLO to host a fundraiser which benefits the NATIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS MEMORIAL FUND, FRIDAY, JULY 15th from PARADISE HARLEY-DAVISON in TIGARD, OR, from 12p-6p (PST).
LEADER CAPITAL pledged to match total donations up to $15K, while HARRY and FLO MERLO have pledged to match total donations up to $5K for a combined pledge to match total donations up to $20K.
LARS will broadcast both his regionally syndicated PACIFIC NORTHWEST show and his nationally syndicated program from 12p to 6p (PST). Listeners are invited to PARADISE HARLEY-DAVIDSON to show their support.
Commented LARSON: "PRESIDENT JOHN ADAMS observed that AMERICA is a nation of laws, not of men. But AMERICA’s laws mean very little if not enforced. Every day, almost a million men and women put on a uniform, a badge and a gun to do just that. They put their lives and their reputations on the line to keep us safe. Law enforcement has come under attack lately, from politicians, activists and assassins. I think ‘Blue Lives’ matter and they come in every color and gender. When law enforcement comes under attack, AMERICANS who believe in the law should stand up and come to their defense."
Added KXL OM BRUCE COLLINS: “We are extremely excited about hosting this event and letting law enforcement officers know that there are many people who truly support them and sincerely appreciate the job they do each day."
