s you begin planning for the 117th Annual IACP Conference, October 23–27, make sure your conference schedule includes attendance at the IACP Foundation’s Fourth Annual Fundraising Gala on Saturday, October 23, at the brand new Hilton Orlando.
Only 15 minutes away from the Orlando airport, the Hilton Orlando is nestled on 26 acres of beautiful landscaping and offers an intelligently designed hotel with spectacular ballroom space for this special event.
The Fundraising Gala, which includes an elegant evening reception and dinner, is one of the premier events during the conference. During this event, leaders of international, federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies join with committed corporate supporters and conference ttendees to raise funds and awareness of Foundation programs and initiatives.
The gala evening will begin with a hosted reception and white-glove dinner, followed by a special speaking program. Although the entertainment and social aspect of the gala cannot be denied, the real meaning of the event lies in its ability to raise the profile of the IACP Foundation, highlight its projects and services, and create an atmosphere where fun and fundraising can truly go hand in hand for a great cause.
Last year’s event in Denver, Colorado, combined with the Foundation’s Silent Auction proceeds, raised more than $130,000—a record amount for the Foundation! Your purchase of a ticket or a table at the Fourth Annual Fundraising Gala in Orlando will enable the Foundation to continue its mission of funding training and professional development for law enforcement agencies around the globe, as well as providing educational support for the families of officers fallen or permanently disabled in the line of duty.
Partners who have already committed to the gala include:
- Dinner sponsor: Lockheed Martin
- Gold sponsors: Target, Motorola, Verizon Wireless, LexisNexis, Intrado
- Silver sponsors: Digital Ally, Accenture, OnStar by GM
- Bronze sponsors: Blauer Manufacturing, W.L. Gore & Associates, DuPont, Deloitte, LEIM Section of the IACP, Mr. Dan Rosenblatt■
