You can see some crime-fighting equipment and help a worthy cause at the same event this Saturday.  From 9am-5pm at the Alton K-Mart parking lot, there will be a host of vehicles and vendors set up to benefit the BackStoppers organization.  The BackStoppers provides needed financial support to the families of all police officers, fire fighters, and publicly funded EMTs who have lost their lives performing their duty.

Event organizer Erin Grilley says there will be plenty to entertain anyone that comes to the event.

Grilley comments

There will also be a car wash, 50/50 drawing and games.  Some of the money raised will also go to the Alton Police K-9 fund raising effort.
