Our Fundraiser Project for 2022
This is a "FUN" fundraiser. All donations and proceeds will go to CrossRoads.
The event will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at Holly Hill Mall and Business Center (parking lot between Dunham's and Anne Elizabeth Dr.) in Burlington. There will be a ride in the afternoon following the event. There is no rain date. Being that this is a fundraiser to benefit victims, ALL entry/registration fees are non-refundable.

CrossRoads was created in 1976 to serve adult survivors of sexual violence. In 1994, the organization grew to provide services to child survivors of sexual violence, which led to the establishment of their Child Advocacy Center (CAC) in 1996. Through their CAC, they added an evidence-based Child Therapy Program and a Medical Program. Since 2017, they added therapy services for adult clients. And, in 2018, they merged with Alamance for Freedom, adding a human-trafficking program to the organization. Adult and child survivors now have access to expert-led programs through CrossRoads for free.
In addition to their regular Adult Sexual Assault Advocacy, CAC, and Human Trafficking Programs, they have multi-disciplinary teams representing both child and adult victims, as well as help and support through a 24/7 Helpline. They work hard to evolve with the needs of survivors, to ensure that they can experience hope and healing.
They currently serve victims of Alamance and Caswell counties. For more information about their commitment, please visit their website at crossroadscares.org.

Heroes Catastrophe Relief Fund
Almost two years ago a relief fund for your heroes was conceived. Building the fund to a sustainable level has been slow. However, we are pleased to announce the generosity of an organization who just donated $10,000! They wish to remain anonymous but we want to acknowledge their gift of love which will help us help our fellow first responders when they fall victim to a natural disaster.
You can help our mission by contributing to the Heroes Catastrophe Relief Fund.

Accolade to outgoing officers
As the outgoing officers prepare to transition out of office, special recognition is due. Their hard work and determination led to tremendous fundraisers with expectations beyond our belief. With their service and guidance, our chapter attained a credible reputation in the communities of Orange and Alamance counties and reached an all-time high membership of thirty-nine.
THANK YOU for your talents, determination and commitment to the success of our chapter!
Blue Knights NC 10 of Orange/Alamance Counties to be immortalized at a national museum!
On July 2, 2017, our chapter made a donation to the National Law Enforcement Museum. Thanks to the generous donations of the members, we are proud to be a part of history and to help create a building that represents the profession and honors all law enforcement. As a result of our donation, our organization's name will be forever inscribed on the panels of the Glass Bridge in the museum that will form a "Thin Blue Line". This beautiful glass bridge will connect the east and west mezzanine levels and will overlook the Main Concourse of the museum.
After more than 20 years, the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund has raised funds to break ground and construction is currently underway for a national museum in our nation's capitol to honor those that serve and sacrifice and celebrate the profession of law enforcement.
We hope to be able to attend the opening ceremonies once the museum is complete.
