The Cops Ride for Kids Motorcycle Ride to benefit POAT’s Holiday Gifts for Surviving Children consisted of over 600 motorcyclists enjoying a beautiful day with a ride to the Keys. We would like to thank everyone who participated in the ride and the coordinators who put this together. The next ride is scheduled for May 2016.
We would like to thank everyone who took the time out of their busy schedule to work one of the donation tables at the malls this holiday season. The joy our efforts bring to the children of our fallen brothers and sisters is huge, and all of the volunteers who helped raise funds for this meaningful program should take great pride in a job well done. I know I speak for all of the surviving children when I say, “Thank You!”
The World Golf Championship at Doral will be held from March 3-6, 2016. The PGA is providing two fundraising opportunities for POAT in which you can help in fulfilling our obligation to receive the donations.
We need approximately 50 volunteers to assist in enforcing the PGA’s Mobile Device Policy. Shifts vary from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Each volunteer will receive a polo shirt, hat and two tickets to the tournament. In return, the PGA will donate $15,000 to POAT. This is the sixth year POAT has participated in the fundraiser. Each volunteer will receive two tickets to golf tournament, a hat and a polo shirt. Please help us by contacting Lt. Thamy Gonzalez 305-216-6605 or firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
Come join us for the Walk to Cure Diabetes on Saturday, April 09, 2016. The walk starts at 8:30 a.m., with registration beginning at 7:00 a.m., at Zoo Miami. This is a fun family day at the zoo while supporting a good cause. All of the officers and/or their family members who are affected by diabetes are grateful and humbled by the momentum this event has gained over the years and the overwhelming response from the law enforcement community. POAT has raised $745,093 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) since we began participating in 2003. To register to walk for the POAT Team, log onto www.JDRF.org; navigate to the Miami Walk and complete the registration, designating POAT as your team when that specific field appears. Remember, this is a fundraiser which requires everyone who walks to raise money for JDRF to help fund research worldwide. We look forward to your participation and support for the POAT Walk Team. If you have any questions, please contact the POAT office at (305) 594-6662.
Thanks for your support and stay safe.
