Illinois State Police District 19 Commander, Captain Cory Ristvedt, would like to announce the results of the 15th annual in-house Charity Auction held at the District 19 Headquarters on Thursday, December 1st. Retired District 19 Troopers and current staff, along with local businesses and vendors, donated various items that were auctioned off. At the end of the day, over $2,400.00 was raised from the Charity Auction and other monetary donations.
As a result of the auction, District 19 will be able to make a $350.00 donation to charitable organizations already identified in each of the seven counties it serves. The donations are being made to those charitable organizations coordinating programs for underprivileged children in the area this holiday season.
Captain Ristvedt stated, “I would like to recognize and thank those who made the 15th annual District 19 Charity Auction a success. If it was not for the continued generosity and work of those involved, these monetary donations would not have been possible.”
