A fallen Chico Police Department officer was remembered today.
More than 100 people turned out to Canyon Oaks Country Club for the inaugural Lance Utterback Golf Tournament.
Utterback was a Chico Police officer who died from cancer in 2006. This event helps raise money for the Butte College Foundation and provides a scholarship to a graduating police academy cadet.
While this fundraiser has helped some officers’ careers get started; it’s also help Utterback’s family keep going.
“It makes the pain easier to bare when you see his friends and a scholarship,” Lance’s father Dean Utterback said. “We just kind of love for this.”
