FAIRFIELD — Police and firefighters will do friendly battle Saturday on the basketball court at Armijo High School to help combat domestic violence in Fairfield.
Dunk Domestic Violence is a basketball game fundraiser to benefit SafeQuest Solano.
At stake are bragging rights, a trophy – and some cash: There’s a wager on the table, with the losing agency kicking some cash to the nonprofit Police Activities League.
Pregame events start at 6 p.m. and include a dunk contest. Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Oakley, will handle the tipoff at 7 p.m.
SafeQuest Solano provides prevention education and intervenes against relationship violence and sexual assault through an array of support services. It maintains a 24-hour crisis line, state-certified emergency shelter for domestic violence victims and their children, safety planning, and threat assessment and management, according to the SafeQuest Solano website.
All services are provided free of charge to the recipients.
SafeQuest Solano got its start nearly four decades ago as the Solano Women’s Crisis Center.
Tickets to the game will be available at the door. For more information and cost, call 422-7345 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday.
