When local law enforcement agencies take on Puyallup teachers and school administrators in the fourth annual Cops vs. Teachers charity basketball game Wednesday, it will be to help one of the community’s youngest members.
The event hosted by the Community Service Club at Ferrucci Junior High on March 27 will benefit 1-year-old Casen Buswell, who has a rare medical condition and will be headed to Belgium for treatment.
Casen is the son of Puyallup teacher Jenna Buswell.
Law enforcement agencies from Puyallup, Lakewood, Bonney Lake, Tacoma and Pierce County will take part in the event, which will also include raffles.
Doors open at 6 p.m., with tipoff at 6:30 p.m. Ferrucci Junior High is at 3213 Wildwood Park Drive in Puyallup.
On June 15, supporters plan to hold a 5k run/walk in Edgewood to benefit Casen.
