All of the proceeds of the game will go to the family of Auburn Police Officer Ron Tarentino Jr., who was shot and killed in the line of duty on May 22, 2016 while making a traffic stop.
Before joining the Auburn Police Department Officer Tarentino, 42, was a police officer in Leicester, where he lived with his wife and three children.
All personnel working the night of the game – police officers, firefighters, EMTs, school administrators, ticket takers and concession stand staff – are volunteering their services in honor of the memory of Officer Tarentino.
Tickets for the game are $5 and are currently being sold in Auburn at Auburn High School (99 Auburn St.) and at Erica Sullivan Realty (889 Southbridge St.) and in Leicester at Mike’s Donut Shoppe (1181 Main St.). It is strongly recommended that tickets to the game be purchased in advance.
