DeKalb Police Alliance - Hometown Hero's Gala and Silent Auction on Oct 3rd.

A while back I discussed the DeKalb Police Alliance, the non-profit organization who fund raises to benefit police officers from all over DeKalb County. I questioned the transparency of the organization and the cost of the event for the officers it is suppose to honor. In response the DeKalb Police Alliance posted their latest tax return on their site and they have reduced the price for police officers and their guests down to $50 per plate.

I have made a donation to the organization and was forwarded the following e-mail therefore if anyone else is in the position to donate to this additional life insurance fund raising effort please do so.
The DeKalb County Police Alliance’s Annual Hometown Hero’s Gala and Silent Auction on October 3, 2009 is quickly approaching and I want to make sure Dunwoody is included. The event will raise funds to renew the three-year $100,000 life insurance policy for all of DeKalb’s police officers. It covers all sworn police officers in DeKalb including those serving in Avondale Estates, Chamblee, Clarkston, Decatur, Doraville, Dunwoody, Lithonia, Pine Lake and Stone Mountain.

The City of Dunwoody can purchase a table for $1,000.00
Regular ticket prices are $100; however, we have reduced tickets for police officers and their guest to $50.00.

To purchase a table or an individual ticket please call Nicole Blackshear at 678.362.0392.

Thanks for your continued support!

Kristin & I attended the DeKalb Police Alliance Ball this evening and kudos to Burrell Ellis for the keynote address which honored the police officers and the many sacrifices that they make to keep us safe.

I witnessed a great camaraderie between the various departments in the room and next year I will find a way to have more Dunwoody representation in the room.
