Want to help local youth? Support the WPB Police Athletic League at this week’s “a Night in the Tropics” fundraiser event.
The annual fundraiser will be held at the beautiful Rybovich Marina.
PAL’s goal is to provide a constructive program with the goal of helping to solve youth problems, to coordinate programs and activities which contribute to the development of character, integrity, physical and mental fitness and the attainment of positive personal objectives, to foster a closer relationship between Law Enforcement Officers and the youth, to ultimately reduce youth crime, violence, alcohol and drug abuse through positive interaction. PAL provides after-school and weekend activities in over 25 different organized sports and educational programs.
Athletics is the draw but education and training are the priority. PAL offers a safe, caring, drug and crime free haven for our youth.
West Palm Beach Police Athletic League dates back to the late 80’s with the Police Department’s Youth Sports Program. Officers coached youth baseball and soccer at Phipp’s Park located on Dixie Highway in the South end. Most of the officers coached on a voluntary basis, however some did coach during work hours.
Now located on Tamarind PAL works through collaborations and partnerships with the community and others and serves over 100 youths per day.
A Night in the Tropics is a PAL fundraiser at the Rybovich Marina – it is a great event with music and dancing at one of the best venues in West Palm Beach!
