Derby Winnings Donated


Location of Incident: 141 S. 3rd Avenue - Yuma, AZ

On April 29, 2014, the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office Demolition Derby Team--Alfonso Zavala, Alfredo Caro, Henry Hernandez and Ken Shaw--donated the winnings from the 33rd Annual Yuma County Fair Demolition Derby to local charities. Donations in the amount of $500.00 each were made to the Boys and Girls Club of Yuma and Hospice of Yuma. The recipients were chosen by the team members as a way to give back to our community. 

Boys and Girls Club of Yuma


Hospice of Yuma

On behalf of Sheriff Leon Wilmot and the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office, we are proud of our Demolition Derby Team and their decision to donate the winnings to local charities. This is a great example of giving back to our community.

We would also like to thank Kennedy’s Towing, Tipton Automotive, Ed Whitehead Tire Pro and Southwest Sanitation for their donations to the team to help build the demolition derby car.
