The Council of 100, a special division of the Palm Beach Police Foundation, celebrated spring on March 28th at a dinner in Palm Beach hosted by David S. Mack, the Foundation’s 1st Vice President, and his wife, Sondra.
Tim Moran, Vice President Emeritus and Co-founder of The Palm Beach Police Foundation and the Council of 100, welcomed more than 170 guests, and recognized Florida State Attorney Dave Aronberg, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, Palm Beach Town Council members, The Palm Beach Police Foundation Board and Council of 100 members, and the Palm Beach Police Department officers in attendance.
Mr. Mack led the Pledge of Allegiance, and John F. Scarpa, Foundation President and Co-founder, introduced Bradshaw, who spoke about ways to keep the community safe, especially school-age children. Toward that end, he recently launched a new app, StudentProtect, from which students, parents and teachers can anonymously report threats or suspicious activity.
Moran then acknowledged the lead gift of $80,000.00 from Annie and Michael Falk and the Plantagenets Team, that will help fund a new designated training facility with state of the art appointments for Palm Beach Police officers. At the dinner, George Albrecht, Eileen and Brian Burns, Llwyd and Diana Ecclestone, Robert and Ann Fromer all made donations of $10,000.00 in David Mack’s name to help The Foundation reach its fundraising goal of $250,00.00 for the new facility.
Deputy Chief Ann-Marie Taylor presented “Officers of the Quarters.” Detective John Scanlan was named Officer of the 4st Quarter of 2017, and Officer Robert Mastrangelo, who was in absentia, was Officer of the First Quarter of 2018. Both received a $500.00 check from the Palm Beach Police Foundation for their exemplary work. Moran’s closing remarks included an announcement to save the date for the Council of 100’s Holiday Dinner at The Breakers on November 28, 2018.
