Police beat the Firemen in softball fundraiser

In a game full of twists and turns, and a ton of laughs, the Quartzsite Enforcers beat the Quartzsite Firefighters in a very close game. The final score was 21-20 as the Police celebrated their win! This season, the two groups have come together three times for Quartzsite Elementary School Fundraisers. The Booster Club sold snacks and The Desert Cafe provided hamburgers and polish sausage and donated the proceeds to the Booster Club.
