Saturday, an annual tournament that raises money for families of slain officers will donate all the proceeds to Patrick's family. Events started at 8:30 a.m. with a basketball tournament at Henry Sibley High School, and the day will wrap-up with a comedy show in Bloomington.
Officer Patrick's family will use the money to go to Washington next month, where Scott will be honored. To contribute, visit http://officerscottpatrick.com.
