Eagle & Badge Foundation gala is September 26

The Eagle & Badge Foundation's gala will be held Saturday, September 26 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel. This annual event raises funds to help the families of police officers and the children in the communities served by Los Angeles Police Department.

I am honored to be this year's recipient of the Leadership Award. Others who will be recognized for their support of our police department include: City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, CBS 2 Sports Director Jim Hill, Assistant Secretary of the Navy Harvey C. Barnum Jr., and AltaMed Health Services President/CEO Castulo de la Rocha. There will also be a special tribute in honor of the officers who are this year's LAPD Medal of Valor.

The evening includes silent and live auctions, a gourmet dinner, entertainment and an opportunity for the guests to learn about the many units of the LAPD, including SWAT, Bomb Squad, Canine Unit, Underwater Dive Team and more.

For information on tickets, tribute ads and more, please call 818-994-4661.
