Ours in the community with many leaders, heroes and legends.  On August 21st, we come together to pay tribute to a unique group of individuals with have chosen different paths but who walk together quietly to help those in need, to raise the quality of our lives and to give back to the community that has afforded them opportunities and success.  Each of them has established a legacy that will extend long into the future, after they have left their chosen fields.  We salute and thank them for the opportunity to publicly recognize their contributions, and especially their legacy, while raising funds for the families of police officers and the children in the communities served by the Los Angeles Police Department.
