Cruzin' Courses Organizing Committee Makes Generous Donation to the Baker/Butler Memorial Fund

This past Thursday marked the eighth annual Cruzin’ Courses Progressive Dinner event in Downtown Santa Cruz.  65 women participated in this annual fundraising event.  Among the fundraising recipients this year is the Baker/Butler Memorial Fund that was established following the senseless and tragic murders of Santa Cruz Police Sergeant Loran “Butch” Baker and Detective Elizabeth Butler.  Cathy Schlumbrecht and the Cruzin’ Courses Organizing Committee made a very generous $1,000 donation to the memorial fund that will benefit the families of our fallen officers.  Cathy presented the donation to Chief Kevin Vogel at Bookshop Santa Cruz during this year’s event.  Also present for the check presentation were Deputy Chiefs Rick Martinez and Steve Clark.  Chief Vogel and Deputy Chiefs Martinez and Clark volunteered for this event and poured “Bubbly” for the ladies during their shopping stop at Bookshop Santa Cruz.  On behalf of the families of Butch Baker, Elizabeth Butler and the members of the Santa Cruz Police Department, we would like to give a HUGE shout out and say thank you to Cathy Schlumbrecht and the Cruzin’ Courses Organizing Committee for their generous donation to the Baker/Butler Memorial Fund.
