KINSMAN - A yearly event that combines bands, antique cars, golf and cornhole tournament is helping to raise money for the Kinsman Police Department.
The second annual community fundraiser held over Labor Day weekend at the Bronzwood Golf Course included a four-person golf scramble, musical performance with different bands, car cruise, 5K race, cornhole toss, and ping pong, volleyball and hula hoop events.
Police Chief Leroy Long said the inaugural event in 2012 was very successful raising $1,000 for the police department.
"We hope to do better this year," he said.
Long said the money is used for car equipment and serves as a supplement to the department's budget.
"We don't have a big budget so this money does help us when we need to fix or get something," he said.
The event drew more than 15 antique cars which were parked near the golf course lawn.
Long said he and two police officers helped at the event as did the staff of the golf course which hosted the event.
The event brings the community out for family fun over Labor Day weekend and to help raise money for the police department.
Long and Moses talked last year about a fundraiser idea which would include games and activities for families combined with a Chinese auction and 50-50.
"We plan to do this again next year. It has been successful and it will be held every year around Labor Day," Moses said.
Jim Bronson of the golf course said the event is for a good cause of helping the police.
"The police take great care of us in this town, so we wanted to do something to help them." said Jamie Bronson, an event committee member.
Bands this year included Garry Markasky, Dry Town, Radio Pulse and Crossover.
Bronzwood Golf Course manager Marti Moses was also the event coordinator.
