Placer County is once again rallying to support California’s Highway Patrol, following the division’s heart-wrenching start to 2016.

Following the death of Officer Nathan Taylor, who was struck and killed by an SUV in snowy conditions along Interstate 80 as he was directing traffic back in March, and the injuries sustained by fellow CHP Officer Michael Ericson, who was run over by a suspect on I-80 near Madison Avenue in early April, members of the community have another chance to show their support for local law enforcement.

On July 30, Skatetown Ice Arena is hosting a charity ice hockey game pitting the California Highway Patrol division against Sacramento area Firefighters in order to raise proceeds for both officer’s families. The game, which is set to begin at 2:45 p.m., is only $20 to attend and all of the sales will be donated to the families of the two officers. 

Skatetown will also conduct a silent auction, which will conclude before the puck drop. Tickets to the game can be purchased in person at 1009 Orlando Avenue, Roseville or by phone at (916) 783-8550 ext. 0.
