California State Prison-Sacramento
Staff from California State Prison, Sacramento (CSP-SAC), recently took part in two fundraising activities and shared a special day with family.
Annual Family Day and Clippers for the Cause
California State Prison, Sacramento (CSP-SAC), celebrated their sixth annual Family Day on Sept. 26. According to those who attended, “Family fun was had by all.”
Approximately 700 employees and family took tours of CSP-SAC and Folsom Prison led by Associate Wardens. There was also a classic car show and several food trucks were on hand to keep families fed.
The highlight of family day was a fundraiser for Placer Breast Cancer Foundation, Clippers for the Cause. CSP-SAC employees pitched in money to watch Warden Jeff Macomber and his executive staff get buzz cuts. CSP-SAC raised $1,600 for The Placer Breast Cancer Foundation.
Red Robin hosts Tip-A-Cop fundraiser
Once again, CSP-SAC Correctional Officers donated their time to raise money for Special Olympics of Northern California. Eight CSP-SAC Officers donned aprons and served dinner at Red Robin in Folsom on Oct. 22 for the Annual Tip-A-Cop Fundraiser.
Patrons of Red Robin enjoyed the royal treatment as the uniformed officers took orders, served meals and cleared tables. In all, $1,675 was raised from tips provided by patrons. The tips were over and above the standard tips for the Red Robin wait staff.
