The Peoria Chamber of Commerce is hosting its third annual First Responder’s Charity Golf Tournament on January 31, 2022, at Blackstone Country Club at Vistancia. The last golf tournament was a complete sell out amid the pandemic restrictions and the event generated $10,000 to support police and fire organizations, demonstrate gratitude, and show ongoing commitment for their tireless work.

“We recognize the significant impact associated with the work our police and firefighters do, and dedicating this event is our way of showing our appreciation for each of them, their families, and the risks they take each day to protect us,” says Scot Andrews, President and CEO Peoria Chamber of Commerce.

The Peoria Chamber of Commerce is proud to again partner with Law Enforcement Specialists (LES), the title sponsor for the second year in a row for this charity golf tournament. The Chamber works alongside generous sponsors and volunteers whose visions align with the mission of the tournament.
“We are excited and energized to partner with Law Enforcement Specialists as our 2022 Title Sponsor supporting our First Responder’s Golf Tournament,” Andrews says. “CEO Bonnie Lucas and her team believe in the sacrifice and dedication our first responders bring to our community every day. We look forward to another engaging, fun event with LES that allows us to demonstrate our appreciation and respect for first responders, and of course, raise funds to support them.”

Bonnie Lucas, CEO of Law Enforcement Specialist, Inc. founded the security firm to address the important need of “putting the law on your side” by providing the resources to coordinate police officers for off-duty work. “The success of LES is only possible because of our brave police officers. We have the privilege of helping supplement their income by doing what they love while providing better lives for their families, reaching their financial goals, and fulfilling their dreams,” she says.
