Carden Circus puts the “fun” in “fund” with gift to Springfield Police Foundation

The Carden Circus on Aug. 4 announced a $15,000 gift to the Springfield Police Foundation on behalf of the owner, whose company will hold a three-day circus at JQH Arena next spring that will also benefit the Foundation and local #BacktheBlue efforts.

“We want to give Springfield police officers better equipment to help the people of Springfield live in a safer place,” George Carden said during a news conference featuring a juggler, a ring-catching dog and an overall festive carnival atmosphere.

“The police take care of children; the police take care of families. That’s what we do, too.”

The CFO, which has held funds for the 501(c)3 Springfield Police Foundation since last year, hosted the conference.
