Spring Forward!

As winter is wrapping up—or at least we hope it is—we wanted to remind you all that our Law Enforcement Appreciation Events are in full swing. As many of you know, these events are our package deals with local sporting teams throughout the U.S. It all started with the Chicago White Sox two years ago, and these events continue to be a success due to the work of the Ambassadors and Guardians.

Last year, we had 21 events which raised over $60,000 for the Memorial Fund. As the sports seasons are starting up again we have more than 17 events in the pipeline for 2013. Not to mention, we have already had successful events with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Red Wings, thanks to Ambassador Brent Clark.

Volunteers like you help us in countless ways. Recently, Guardian Rob Adams organized a successful shooting match at a local range that helped raise $1,000. And HP White Laboratory sponsored a Texas Hold’Em Tournament at the Venetian raising another $1,000. Every event helps us not only raise funds to support our mission, but also makes others aware of our work.

The work of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund isn’t just to build the Museum and support the Memorial, but to promote officer safety. While line-of-duty deaths in 2013 are down, we have lost 18 officers since January. Remember, safety and survival education through our Valor program is just one piece of the solution.

Be Safe!
