Policeman’s Ball sets fundraising record

Publicado en por cheapoakley

There’s so much money coming out of The Mar-a-Lago Club these days that it might be time to put in a drive-up teller.
It was a $1 million-dollar Fake Oakley sunglasses milestone for yet another local charity, as the Palm Beach Police Foundation hosted the 2015 Policeman’s Ball and broke its previous fundraising record.
The event took place Jan. 17 at the club and had a James Bond theme.
“The old James Bond, not those new guys,” said Mark Freitas, serving as chairman for the second year and looking quite suave in his “Conneryesque” white dinner jacket. His wife, Mary, once again served as chairwoman, with Michael and Annie Falk repeating their roles as honorary chairman and honorary chairwoman.
The evening began with a poolside cocktail reception, which ended with the first skirl from the Palm Beach Pipes and Drums, who led guests into the Grand Ballroom. Designer Tom Mathieu incorporated Bond elements into the décor, including hand-held face Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses masks depicting villains, villainesses and vixens, sunglasses, and even a white menu card with a little bow tie wrapped in a napkin to look just like a tuxedo.
David S. Mack was the evening’s honoree, receiving the highest Cheap Oakley Sunglasses honors of both the Palm Beach Police Foundation and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. John Scarpa and Tim Moran presented the Palm Tree Award on behalf of the foundation; Sheriff Ric Bradshaw presented his department’s highest civilian recognition.
Detective Larry Menniti received the Officer of the Year Award from Kirk Blouin, director of public safety.
The evening continued with a live auction conducted by Bill Bone, dinner, dancing to the music of Soul Survivor – all in white dinner jackets – and lots of coffee and doughnuts. OK, not really. That was a cop joke.
More than 600 people attended. Proceeds from the night – more than $1 million – benefit the Palm Beach Police Foundation, a charitable organization that underwrites programs, and accept and manages tax deductible gifts for the benefit of the Palm Beach Police Department.
