It’s so hard to put your finger on the concept that Saturday, April 8, 2017 we hosted our 19th Washington State Law Enforcement Ball and Auction. Our 19th!!!
Words are insignificant to share our appreciation for our volunteers… especially Kevin Haistings (SPD) – Event Chair and Vicky Davidson (Survivor) – Auction Director. A year’s worth of planning folding into place for one and all to enjoy. This year’s event was a huge success… not only raising money to benefit the foundation…. but also the respect shown during the Roll Call of Honor along with new and renewed friendships.
Be sure to mark your calendars (April 2018) for the 20th Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial Ball and Auction…. We are in process as I type securing the location and confirming the date. Just know we have lots to celebrate and want you to share it with us!
