While you're waiting for the mermaids this Saturday downtown, pick up a pork sandwich and help out some kids in the process.

The Tucson Police Officers Association is holding its Hog Roast and Beer Toast 2014 at World of Beer 350 East Congress Street from 1 p.m. to midnight.

For a $10 ticket, you can get a meal and entered into a raffle to win an iPad, a fat tire beach bike and more. Live music will also be provided.

Proceeds go to the TPOA’s kids and cops program.
