OAKLAND -- Local law enforcement officers who are members of a fraternal motorcycle club are donating proceeds from their 10th annual open house Saturday to the family of slain CHP Officer Kenyon Youngstrom, who was fatally shot by a motorist Sept. 4 on Interstate 680 in Alamo.
The open house is being held by the Los Carnales/La Familia Motorcycle Club, whose president is Hayward police Sgt. Cory Quinn.
"Anytime a brother goes down, it hurts," Quinn said. "We want the family just to know there are people in the law enforcement community that care, that hurt and want to give back."
The open house will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the group's clubhouse, 4425 Piedmont Ave. There will be a raffle, a custom bike and car show, free hot dogs for children, $10 meals catered by El Taquito Restaurant #2 of Hayward, vendors and music. Hundreds of people are expected, including members from the club's Texas chapter.
The club has done fundraisers in the past for other families of slain officers. In 2008, they donated open house proceeds to Christopher Rodriguez, the then 11-year-old boy who was paralyzed in a shooting that happened a half block from the clubhouse.
