Wilmington & Tewksbury Police Departments To Hold Benefit For Cops For Kids With Cancer

TEWKSBURY, MA — Tewksbury Police Chief Timothy B. Sheehan and Wilmington Police Chief Michael Begonis would like to invite the public to a fundraising event for Cops for Kids With Cancer next month.


Sunday, June 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Wamesit Lanes, 434 Main St., Tewksbury


The community is welcome to join the Tewksbury and Wilmington Police Departments for a family-friendly event next month to raise money for CFKWC. Over the past eight years, there have been six families in Tewksbury and nearly as many in Wilmington who have received one of CFKWC’s generous $5,000 donations. Both departments want to continue to support additional awards across the Commonwealth.

During the event, there will be a bowling competition and a cornhole competition. Businesses, residents, law enforcement, firefighters and EMS providers are encouraged to put together a team and join in some friendly competition for a good cause.

Five-person bowling teams can register online at the Wamesit Lane’s website. The time slots available to bowl are at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. at the cost of $500 per team. Lane sponsorships are available for an additional $500 and include your name and/or logo on the television screens above your lane.

Two-person cornhole teams can register through a fillable sign-up form by clicking here or online by clicking here. Time slots available for cornhole are 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the cost of $40 per team.

There will be bowling trophies for the winning team which they can keep until next year’s event.

The arcade at Wamesit Lanes will also be open for free with plenty of games and complementary food. Additionally, attendees can enjoy Touch-a-Truck with police and fire vehicles, K-9 unites, SWAT, horses, motorcycles and more. There will be a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction, and a “Closest to the Pin” and “Longest Drive” golf competitions.

This event is open to the public and all proceeds will go directly to CFKWC.

Anyone with questions, or those who cannot make it to the event but wish to contribute a donation or a silent auction item, can contact Wamesit Lanes.
