About the Event

This event will be raising proceeds for Rowland Police Officer Michael Sale who was severely beaten on-duty after responding to a disturbance and attempting to arrest a suspect. Officer Sales was the only officer on duty at the time and was unable to call for back-up. The brutal assault was filmed and onlookers refused to help the officer. Michael Sales ended up being airlifted to UNC Hospital to treat his injuries. We are trying to help cover any bills and medical expenses as necessary.

Bring your Thin Blue Line flags and wear your Back the Blue gear to show your support.

Fundraising will be held through a large variety of vendors and raffles!

Raffles include a cake auction from local bakers, a Shotgun, and more!

Vendors are welcome to attend for a $50 set up fee. All proceeds from vendor fees go directly to Officer Sales.
