BCSO Car Show Is Its Biggest Fundraiser Of The Year

Bexar County Sheriff's Car Show fundraiser

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office held its biggest fundraiser of the year on Saturday when 200 cars rolled into Comanche Park #2 BCSO's annual car show. 

The Sheriff's Office expected to raise $2,000, half of which will go to its explorer program.

"Basically it's like scouts for law enforcement," 20-year-old Yanchie Pai said. 

He's been an explorer for two years and hopes to become a deputy or state trooper when he finishes college. 

"My grandfather used to be a police officer in Taiwan, so I want to continue his heritage basically," he said. 

The rest of the money raised Saturday will go to the Sheriff's Volunteer Alliance, the non-profit wing of BCSO that distributes money based on the needs and requests from the units in the sheriff's divisions. 

If you couldn't make the car show, you can still help out the sheriff's office by calling and asking for their community services unit.
