The St. Louis County Police Pipes and Drums Annual Trivia Night
The Pipes and drums are funded by the St. Louis County Police Welfare Association. The St. Louis County Police Welfare Association is a 501(c) 4 organization that provides financial assistance to the families of the St. Louis County Police who have suffered a catastrophic loss. The (STLCPD) Welfare association also provides the uniforms and drums for the Pipes and Drums, as well as the financial support needed to attend the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington D.C. every year. The purpose of our trivia night is simply, to raise funds to relieve the financial burden of sending the band to Washington D.C. and allow more police officers to experience the national ceremony.
