“The welfare of officers can only go so far if they are not supported by their wives and family members,” said CPD Family Support Network contributor Annie Dundas.

The pub crawl will include six bars and pubs: The Office Bar and Grill, Blacktooth Brewery, Frosty’s Bar and Grill, Gaslight Social, Ramkota Spirits Lounge and Backwards Distilling Co.

Two prizes will be drawn. The grand prize is a one-night stay at the Lodge at Deadwood in South Dakota and wine. A merchant basket worth more than $500 will also be awarded to a winner.
Raffle tickets will be sold at participating locations for $3 each, they will also be included with merchandise or beverage purchases.
The DCBA is delighted to partner with the DPC Family Support Network through fundraising.
“I thought it was perfect that they were doing something that Casper is having a problem with and it’s great to see an organization outside of the police department working with people,” said the DCBA vice president, Christopher Sorge.
According to the CPD Family Support Network, the money from the pub crawl will help fund peer support training courses for families of police officers.
