A telemarketer from San Mateo is apparently using the upcoming Napa D.A.R.E. Fiesta Night as a cover for a scam, police said.
Napa Police Lt. Debbie Peecook said people should ignore any calls from 650-240-1111 or any other phone calls requesting donations for D.A.R.E.
"This is a scam," Peecook said. "The Napa Police Department does not solicite donations via the telephone for the D.A.R.E. Program."
If people are interested in contributing to D.A.R.E.
and other student safety programs in the Napa schools, they may attend Fiesta Night, which is Aug. 29, from 5-8 p.m. at Compadres Rio Grill, 505 Lincoln Ave., Napa.
Fiesta Night includes hearty finger foods, music, a silent auction and raffle.
Tickets are $20
for presale and $25 at the door. With the purchase of your ticket you
will also receive an automatic entry into a drawing.
