1st Annual Marshals Golf Classic
On August 9, 2013, the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund hosted its first golf fundraiser at Andrews Air Force Base. Despite a few minutes of torrential downpour, it was a great afternoon of golf and fun. Hundreds of prizes were given away and the winner went home with a 50” flat screen television. USMS employees, retired members, friends, family and corporate sponsors travelled from across the country to take part in this inaugural event. Their collective generosity raised over $32,000! Without the leadership of the Marshals Golf Classic Committee and the tireless work of all our volunteers, none of this would have been possible. Thanks to all of you for taking time out of your personal lives to be a part of the U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund family.
N/IN and D/MA Coordinate Nationwide Fundraiser
On June 18, 2013, after several months of coordination, the selfless actions of two Deputies and their partnership with Sally’s Cop Shop finally came to fruition. The U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund was the recipient of a donation in the amount of $14,393.00. This significant contribution was the single largest donation the Fund has received to date. The Fund’s Board of Directors would like to recognize Sally’s Cop Shop for their generosity and thank every USMS employee who purchased a 2013 Police Week T-Shirt. This donation would not have been possible without your support. The Board of Directors would also like to give special appreciation to the two Deputies from the Northern District of Indiana and the District of Massachusetts for their steadfast commitment to our mission.
