About The Event

The format for the tournament will be as follows: 

  1. Each team will bowl 2 games, and
  2. The top 4 teams advance to the final where they will bowl 1 game and the highest score wins.

We will have raffle tickets available for purchase for the raffle items.

Additionally, we are going to have an EXCITING NEW FEATURE THIS YEAR!!!  We will be offering a bail yourself out pack for $20 per bowler per game.  This will give you 2 free 2nd chances for first balls bowled and one automatic spare pick up for each game purchased for.

The Hometown Heroes Classic Bowling Tournament is an annual event put on by The Oviedo Police Foundation, together with local businesses/individuals to raise funds to support the men and women of the Oviedo Police Department in diverse ways ranging from:

  • Assistance for officers and their families due to financial crisis or unforeseen hardships, like serious medical issues,
  • The purchasing of supplemental equipment for the officers or the department (in the past the Oviedo Police Foundation has purchased body armor for all school resource officers at Oviedo public schools),
  • Providing additional training for the officers as needed and directed by the Chief of Police,
  • Providing additional education opportunities for officers and rewarding officers, such as the department’s Officer of the Year.

The Oviedo Police Foundation


The Oviedo Police Foundation was established in 2013 as an independent, non-profit organization (under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code) by a group of Oviedo citizens who desire to enhance the Oviedo Police Department. The Foundation raises money through fundraisers and donation and DOES NOT solicit by telephone or telemarketers.

The foundation is run entirely by volunteers with no paid employees. With the exception of minimal operating expenses such as website costs, postage, and other incidental costs, nearly 100% of the donations and funds raised go directly to the officers and the police department. All distributed funds and purchases must be approved by a board vote in accordance with the foundation’s bylaws. Therefore, you can rest assured that the money you donate to assist the officers will reach them and directly benefit the department.

Use of Funds

The Foundation does not replace municipal funding, as the City of Oviedo funds the Police Department annually through the budget process. The Foundation funds are designed only to be a supplement in an effort to allow the Oviedo Police Department to keep pace with rapidly evolving technology, strategies, and training necessary to best serve our community, which are not covered in the Department’s annual budget.

Citizen Stakeholders

The private sector and citizens of Oviedo have a tangible stake in the success of the Oviedo Police Department and the continuing safety and security of our city.  The Oviedo Police Foundation serves a dynamic role by linking private investment donations with effective public safety solutions. The Foundation strives to leverage private resources to enhance law enforcement services for Oviedo residents and business owners.
