Cleveland, OH—On Friday January 25 at 7:30 pm, the Cleveland Cavaliers will take on the Milwaukee Bucks at The Q, as the Cavs team up with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) to host a special night honoring the service and sacrifice of all law enforcement officers and their families.

A portion of proceeds ($7 from each ticket sold) from Law Enforcement Appreciation Night will benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the nonprofit organization that maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. Ohio police departments that lost an officer in 2012 (Cleveland Police Department, Willoughby Police Department, Akron Police Department, and Vermilion Police Department) will be honored during a special pre-game ceremony.

Additionally, the first 500 tickets sold come with a limited edition Memorial Fund and Cavaliers commemorative challenge coin. Plus there will be a Tristan Thompson bobblehead giveaway for the first 10,000 fans. Families are also encouraged to stick around for a post-game free throw contest for kids.

Ticket information:

  • Lower Level Arena Curve: $59
  • Lower Level Base Line: $45
  • Upper Level Loudville Center: $33

“We are proud to partner with the Cleveland Cavaliers," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the Memorial Fund. “Coming together at The Q to honor our nation’s law enforcement officers, while enjoying a fun night of basketball, is sure to be a great occasion—and a great way to raise awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund."

The Memorial Fund spearheads the efforts to build the privately-funded National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC, which will tell the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research, and education. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton serve as co-chairs of the Museum’s National Honorary Campaign Committee, which also includes seven former attorneys general of the United States, as well as other former government officials and celebrities, including Honorary Chairman Clint Eastwood.
