KIRO Newsradio supports families of police officers through Fallen Officer Memorial Fund


KIRO Newsradio 97.3 FM announced the newly created “Fallen Officer Memorial Fund” and online auction benefitting the families of the two uniformed officers killed in the line of duty in Washington State: Sheriff’s Deputy Dominique Calata of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department and Officer Dan Rocha of the Everett Police Department.

The online auction has officially ended, but you’re still able to donate at the link below.

As part of our fundraising for the Fallen Officer Memorial Fund, we conducted a drawing for a chance to receive Mariners Diamond Club tickets. Everyone who donated through our auction site were eligible for this drawing. Or, if you didn’t donate, you were able to call us at the Bonneville Seattle Front Desk at 206-726-7000 with your name and phone number for your chance to participate in this drawing. Must say “Mariners Ticket Drawing” in your phone call or voicemail to be eligible. Click here for rules and more information.

Funds received will be distributed equally to the two families through the existing official officer funds set up for the Calata family and the Rocha family by Tacoma-Pierce County CrimeStoppers and Victim Support Services, Coastal Community Bank, respectively.

“One of our company’s core values is to ‘lift, inspire and help others.’ I cannot think of a more meaningful way to use our voice and resources than to help the families of these officers,” said Cathy Cangiano, SVP and Market Manager for Bonneville Seattle. “Our afternoon host, John Curley, initiated the idea and the natural progression of heart-felt support from the rest of the KIRO Newsradio staff has been a source of great pride for us all at Bonneville Seattle.”
