Hello to all of you!
Another Police Week is upon us and we wish to provide you with the following events that our DC FOP Auxiliary will be participating in this year.
We will be co-hosting the annual Local Law Enforcement Memorial with DC MPD and COPS on May 7th at 11:30 a.m. This year we will be honoring Baltimore PD Detective Sean Suitor; Montgomery County Fire Marshall Sander Cohen, who was killed when he stopped to help an off-duty FBI agent; and 5 FBI agents who died from 9/11 related deaths. Afterward, our Auxiliary will be hosting a luncheon at the DC FOP Lodge. If you are in town, it would be great if you could stop by and show your support for the families and friends of the fallen officers. We would like to take this opportunity to greatly thank CODE 3 and Maggiano’s for sponsoring our luncheon this year.
Our Auxiliary will have a booth at tent city again this year. We will be selling several unique items as well as having a few raffles that I am sure you will love to participate in. Our booth will be set up from May 13 to May 15. Please stop by for any reason just so that we can get to know you and thank you for all you do. It is important to note that the money we make during Police Week, in addition to our other fundraisers, allows us to help our members when they are in need, as well as to provide cakes to law enforcement graduating classes. We also have a history of donating to many causes such as GoFundMe efforts for our local law enforcement families in need and the Special Olympics, March of Dimes and Make-A-Wish. However, in order to do this, we must continue to do fundraisers as well as participate in Police Week Tent City to cover these expenses.
Some of our Auxiliary and Associate members of the DC FOP will be volunteering again at the VIP Booth on Capitol Hill during the annual National Law Enforcement Memorial. We are always honored to help out and watch such a moving and wonderful memorial service.
Our DC FOP Auxiliary hopes to see you during this great week of remembering our fallen heroes.
