Salinas Police Department Participates in Fantasy Flight 2018

Salinas Police Department participated in Fantasy Flight 2018 sponsored by the Cops Care Cancer Foundation this past Saturday December 8 in San Jose, Ca. Salinas PD provided a police escort to two Salinas families selected by the foundation to be part of this year’s special event, which took place at San Jose PD’s hangar at San Jose Airport. The local families have children ages 7 and 13 who will be two of the many special guests. Fantasy Flight has been around for years but this is the first year Salinas PD is involved and we hope to support this worthy cause yearly.

What is Fantasy Flight? Fantasy Flight is an event for any child that is battling cancer or any other life-threatening illness. The entire family is invited to join as the kids enjoy this Christmas themed carnival. Guests will get to meet with local police officers, police dogs, fire fighters, and special guests. While the kids await Santa’s arrival via police helicopter, there will be a chance for them to win prizes at the carnival themed festivities. There will be food (BBQ Burgers & dogs), treats, drinks, jumper houses face painters, music and a photo booth.

Who can attend Fantasy Flight? Any child stricken with cancer or who has any life-threatening illness or condition who are under the age of 18 may attend. (Transplant patients are also welcome.) Each child may bring all of their brothers and sisters as well as their parents and grandparents. Every child (Including the brothers and sisters under the age of 18) will receive o gifts from Santa Claus.
