a 911 Hit!

More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


It was 911 fun December 17th, 2011 as over 700 San Diego Police Officer Association members and their guests gathered for the 31st annual POA Christmas Party at the Hard Rock Hotel downtown.

Among the attendees were old friends and fellow Chiefs and Officers, William Lansdowne, David Ramirez, Shelley Zimmerman, David Kries, Vanessa Holland, Alan Alvarez, Bob Herzig, J.K. Hudgins, Ray Morales, John McShane, Raymond Battrick, Linda Garcia, Jeff Scruggs, Nick Minx, Rick Bulette, Dave Speck, Ed Lynch, Bob Dare, and Mark Pitucci.

Arriving guests dropped off a toy and non-perishable food for the Jerry Griffin Annual Memorial Food and Toy Drive. A cocktail reception was enjoyed before a welcome address by POA President Brian Marvel.

The night continued with a fabulous dinner, and dancing until late.

A special thanks to our friends, Attorney Scott O'Mara and his wife, Gale OMara, for having us as their personal guests, and for their support of the Police Officer's Association. Many thanks also to POA Executive Assistant Khristina Smith for her tireless efforts and dedication to making this one of the best Christmas celebrations ever!

Scott, I am at a loss for words… this is phenomenal! This is a great article. I do not think anyone has ever done this for the POA party. I am also very touched, like never before, that you mentioned me in the manner you did. In 16 years here at the POA this is the first time I have been thanked publicly for anything. Words cannot nearly express how very honored I feel. Thank you, Scott! You made my year! Take care and be safe. K.
