GOLD SHIELD GALA
'Every Dime Fights Crime'
The Gold Shield Gala was the place to be September 10th, 2016.
Location was the historic U.S. Grant Hotel...
More than $280,000 was raised including a generous $50,000 donation from the D. W. Hearst Jr. Foundation .... all to ensure that 14 well trained Police K-9's can better help their handlers do their job and fight crime.
As patron Lou Ferrero noted...."A spectacular event -great turnout and wonderful participation demonstrating the respect those attending feel for the value of the canine unit.
Always an honor to support our Law enforcement organizations and this event particularly with the K9 component augmenting The tools provided to our San Diego police force which may help keep our officers out of harms way and reduce the amount of lethal force they have to exert in subduing armed suspects."
Highlights of the evening included honoring fallen Officer JD DeGuzman, recognition of Officer Bob Truderung's 25 years of service as a K9 handler, and Chief Shelley Zimmerman's vibrant speech!
Among the many key supporters were Arlene and Richard Esgate, Donovan Restaurants' Sally and Dan Shea, Denise and Bertrand Hug, Martha and Mike McKinnon, Corky Mizer, Mary Jean Anderson of Anderson's Plumbing, Valerie and Harry Cooper, Honorary Chairs Hélène and George Gould and Gala Chairs Barbie and Dan Spinazzola.
