The LAPD Olympic Division is putting on a Fall Carnival with multiple goals. First of all, the Division looks to the event as a way of celebrating and fostering a postitive sense of community in the area. And just as importantly, LAPD Olympic Division is focused on raising funds for he Olympic Area Cadet program, Deputy Auxiliary Program and Jeopardy programs. The funds are used for uniforms, field trips and training (academics). All these programs are composed of local youth within the Olympic community. They target at risk youth that otherwise would join gangs or drop out of schools. It keeps these children off the street and give them an opportunity they would not have if it did not exist.
The carnival includes all the great things we know and love about festivals – rides, games, food, face painting and family fun! LAPD Olympic Division invites everyone to come and enjoy the weekend.
We all know how much work an event like this takes…we’ve all worked a bunch of similar school events over the years. The Olympic Division is committed to the community and could use our support. If you can’t make the event – consider buying some tickets as a donation to a good cause! You can drop by the Olympic Community Police Station at 1130 South Vermont Avenue (just south of Olympic Blvd.). It’s a $43 Million building with a lovely guest parking lot on the north side of the building…worth seeing under the positive circumstances of making a donation!
Tickets are 50% off from now until October 20th…10 tickets for $20. And if you aren’t able to make it, the tickets can be donated to a needy family in the neighborhood. Ticket prices are higher during the event.LAPD Olympic Division Fall Carnival Friday-Sunday, October 21st – 23rd on Olympic between Elden & Vermont Pre-Sale Tickets 50% off through October 20th at the station (1130 S.
