"Heroes Among Us"
The Foundation held its Seventh Annual Fundraiser Breakfast event on Friday March 4th at the Hilton Bellevue Grand Ballroom.
The annual breakfast has become a mainstay in our fundraising efforts each year. The Police Foundation supports Bellevue Police Department initiatives and programs that the city cannot readily fund. Less than 2% of the police department's annual budget goes to discretionary spending on equipment. The Bellevue Police Foundation helps the Bellevue Police Department keep pace with rapidly evolving technology, training techniques and strategies. By supporting innovative projects, our public-private partnership provides the Bellevue Police Department with the means to launch experimental programs, expand training and create efficiencies that ultimately saves police department cost – creating a truly sustainable model.
All proceeds from this event directly benefit the Bellevue Police Department and consequently the safety that we all enjoy in the City of Bellevue.
We are very pleased to announce that due to the generosity of our sponsors and donors we raised $110,445 at this event. Thank you!
