Sheriff's office detectives bowl for dollars

Posted

The ninth annual SungateKids Bowlathon will raise money for SungateKids, an organization that benefits child victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect.

As usual, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Investigations Division will take part in the bowl-a-thon to sponsor the fundraiser. To sponsor the bowling detective teams go to www.sungatekids.org or make a donation directly to anyone in the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Special Victim’s Unit.

The public can join the festivities and cheer on the teams of “Angels” and “Devils” from 5-8 p.m. April 10 at Brunswick Zone in Lone Tree.

Every year, thousands of children become victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and neglect. Prevention is critical — but equally critical is what happens to child victims once they disclose abuse or neglect. SungateKids serves the children in Douglas, Arapahoe, Lincoln and Elbert counties. It is a child-focused program in which representatives from law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical and victim advocacy work together to conduct interviews and make team decisions about investigation, treatment, management and prosecution of child-abuse cases.

Child victims are brought to SungateKids after the crime is committed. The organization serves as a resource to law enforcement and child protective services by providing forensic interviews.

It costs SungateKids about $350 per child to provide services, and the company relies almost entirely on donations. Last year SungateKids provided services to more than 1,000 children and families.

Donations are tax deductible.
