  Thanks to Paul Kaneb for the submission!   On December 16th, Delray Lacrosse & Leadership (DLL) in association with Delray Citizens for Delray Police held their annual Heroes & Helpers event at the Target in Delray Beach. Forty families were treated to breakfast & then a take-home turkey dinner while each of the children in the DLL program received a gift card so they could purchase Christmas presents with the assistance of a police or fire department officer.     Detective Adrian Rackauskas helped organize the event.  He said “Christmas is about the kids. Delray Lacrosse & Leadership is helping these kids in our community. It’s great to have them interact with our law and fire personnel.”  Jeff Goldberg, director of lacrosse for
