Law Enforcement Officers around the Southern Tier are participating in a first-ever golf tournament to benefit local charities.

“Cops for a Cause” will take place at the Links at Hiawatha Landing in Apalachin on Friday, September 22.

The event is organized by local law enforcement members as another way to give back to their communities and begins at 10 a.m.

All proceeds will be going directly to local charities and organizations that support residents in the Southern Tier such as Traci’s Hope, A Room to Heal and the Southern Tier Veterans’ Support group.
