It's the season of giving, and the proceeds of an annual fundraiser were presented to the Corpus Christi Police Athletic League on Monday.

In partnership with Valero, the non-profit organization hosted its 9th annual Dove Hunt Fundraiser during the first weekend in October.

About 700 people attended, raising $178,000 for the police athletic league to maintain its programs.

"Oh there's -- when you have a building like this there's always something," said CCPD Sr. Officer David Morris. "Of course, there's all the different programs that we run, baseball fields. So it's just a lot of maintenance, and paying the bills and buying equipment and just all kinds of different things to keep the programs running."

The police athletic league is a non-profit organization. It offers recreational and educational programs for kids, and helps them learn leadership and build character.
