L.F.D's Robert G. Tahbonemah fundraiser & L.P.D's "Shop With A Cop" Christmas program

The annual basketball game put on by The Lawton Fire Department and The Lawton Firefighter's Association raises money for a local high school scholarship in memory of former L.F.D. Corporal Robert Tahbonemah (T-bone) who passed away from cancer in 2010.

The proceeds from the game also go towards the Lawton Police Department's Shop with a Cop program. The program provides kids in the Lawton community an opportunity to spend time with local authorities and to get toys they otherwise might not get for Christmas.
