The Whittier Police Department has the SPIRITT.
From 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, 2013, SPIRITT Family Services will be honoring the department with its Healthy Communities Advocate Award during a “Filling the Basket with Gifts of the Heart” fundraiser at Town Center Hall in Santa Fe Springs.
The department has a longstanding contract to provide police services to SFS.
The event will feature live entertainment by the famed Mariachi Divas, raffles, auctions and food and wine tasting.
Aside from the department, Juvenile Court Judge Michael Nash will be feted with the Thriving Children Advocate Award while the Mariachi Divas will be honored with the Strengthening Communities Through Arts and Music Award.
All proceeds will benefit SPIRITT, a group whose mission is to strengthen local families in the community.
