Cal Flame Supports Local California Gang Task Force Event
Leading Barbecue Manufacturer Donates to Annual Training Conference

Los Angeles, CA—(November 29, 2011) Cal Flame, the high-end barbecue manufacturer from the Cal Spas family, is pleased to announce its donation to the California Gang Task Force’s 4th Annual National Training Conference, which took place on November 15 – 18, 2011 in Orange County, California.

“At Cal Spas, we are always seeking opportunities that support our local communities,” said Casey Loyd, President of Cal Spas. “The California Gang Task Force is an integral part of our community, therefore we felt it was necessary to help fund their organization and efforts to keep our communities safe.”

Cal Flame donated a Charcoal Cart to the California Gang Task Force, which was used as a Grand Prize for the raffle held during the conference. The raffle generated funds for the organization to give back to the local communities.

“We would like to thank Cal Flame for their generous Charcoal Cart donation,” said Deputy Grover, Advisory Board Member for the California Gang Task Force. “Their donation was a huge hit among attendees, who were excited to see such a large raffle item. We appreciate their support and help in giving back to our local communities.”

The National Training Conference was created to provide law enforcement personnel with updated information on organized prison and street gangs, and terrorist groups. The conference thoroughly discussed how these groups and other criminal gangs/groups affect our local communities, jails and prisons. The training provided effective and legitimate applications of the criminal intelligence process, and included specialized workshop-based presentation and materials from recognized experts.
