A very cool event at 'Tommy's Place' in Falmouth, MA this past Saturday made for a fun day for some kids that are fighting cancer. Tommy's Place is a vacation home in Falmouth for children battling cancer that gives the kids and their families a free Cape Cod vacation.
The event was the annual Cops and Cars car show and touch-a-truck event, which is actually a fundraiser for Tommy's Place. According to a post on the Massachusetts State Police Facebook page.
There was plenty to do at the event for the kids, including the Touch-A-Truck event featuring police & first responder equipment, a K-9 demonstration, and the NHRA “Follow A Dream” Drag Racing Team. There were also food trucks, raffles, and a 50/50 drawing.
Trooper Jesse Walker III got to hold up some hardware, as the Massachusetts State Police Pink Patch Cruiser cruiser drove away with the "Best Police Cruiser" trophy! The vehicle was completely overhauled in pink recently in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness.

This won't be the last time the pink cruiser makes a public appearance. The Facebook post says that we should keep an eye out for the Massachusetts State Police Pink Patch Cruiser, the MSP Air Wing, and the Mounted Unit across the state during the summer months as we continue to make an appearance at community events.
