The Sky is the Limit at Fallen Heroes Fundraiser

January 30, 2009


BSO’s External Affairs Liason Nelson Velez stands atop a Broward Sheriff’s Fire Rescue ladder truck and dumps a bucket of golf balls during the second annual Fallen Heroes Golf Tournament Saturday at the Deerfield Country Club.  The ball drop was one of many raffles and contests to raise money for the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County’s Fallen Heroes Fund, which helps support the families of fallen law enforcement officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty. More than 140 golfers participated in the tournament.  Commander Rick Wierzbicki, who organized the tournament, said he hoped to surpass last year’s amount of $32,000.
