Archer County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Simon Dwyer, Archer City Police Chief Justin Perron and Sgt. Matthew England participated last Saturday evening in Patsy’s House annual fundraising event “Bingo Bags and Badges.”
Those who attended were treated to a night of fun with music, food, drinks and bingo as they cheered on their favorite Law Enforcement Officer walking the runway to their favorite music while modeling designer bags! If lucky enough to “Bingo” a designer bag was the prize.
The catwalk performance of modeling handbags was limited only by the imagination of the officer walking the runway.
Patsy’s House is a non-profit organization governed by a local board of directors. Patsy’s House mission is “to provide a non-residential, safe place with a neutral setting for children to meet with investigators and others when there are reports of abuse, and to meet the needs of abused, neglected and traumatized children through programs of prevention, advocacy and support.”
Chief Perron, who has participated in the event the past two years, said, “I think it is imperative to participate in such an event because of all the good work that is done by Patsy’s House.”
Chief Deputy Simon Dwyer of the Archer Sheriff’s Department serves on the board of directors for the organization. Dwyer said, “This organization does so much to help the kiddos that need them. Speaking as a law enforcement officer, we couldn’t do it without them.”
Other law enforcement agencies that participated in the event were Burnett PD and Wichita Falls PD.
