2014 Police Week Fundraiser
On May 16, 2014,The U.S. Marshals Survivors Benefit Fund hosted a fundraiser at Samuel Beckett's Irish Gastro Pub in Arlington, VA. The goal of this event was to bring together deputies from around the countrywho were in DC for National Police Week and raise awareness of the Fund. The event was a big success and so much fun! The bar was packed with supporters, fundraising t-shirts sold out quickly, all items that the Sam Beckett’s generously donated were auctioned off, and many raffle tickets were sold. The highlight of the night was the US Marshals Pipe and Drum Band, who played several times throughout the evening and was a huge hit with everyone in the bar. Our deepest gratitude to Sam Becketts for hosting our event, Steve Panepinto and Art Roderick who pulled the event together with such short notice, to our volunteers of the evening and to all the members of the Pipe and Drum Band who volunteered their time and talents and made the event a huge success. Thank You!
