Celebrate San Mateo’s Police Activities League
Friday, March 6, 5:30 PM – San Mateo County Event Center
Please come join us as to celebrate and support the San Mateo Police Activities League’s (PAL) efforts by going “(Kind of) Country” this year at our 17th Annual “Lights and Sirens” Awards and Recognition Dinner on March 6th! The San Mateo Police Activities League is a non-profit partnership between the San Mateo Police and Park & Recreation Departments, dedicated to ensuring our PAL youth grow up safe, strong, and armed with critical life and social skills.
With the perfect venue and a Country Western theme, we hope you will “Pardner” with us in your boots and cowboy attire and be prepared to ride the range at the San Mateo County Event Center! There will also be special opportunities to meet and take photos with SMPD SWAT and K9 officers, as well as witness our very own PAL Dance Team in action as we honor our PAL youth, Police Officers, and our incredible community that helps and supports our PAL kids year after year!
“San Mateo PAL represents our most important mission here in our community which is keeping our kids in school, on track, and working towards the bright future that each and every child deserves,” says Chief Susan Manheimer.
This will be a special and exciting evening MC’ed by our very own PAL Board member, retired 49er and current Comcast SportsNet Analyst Dennis Brown. Many local luminaries will be on-hand to share in the evening’s revelry. Enjoy a fabulous silent auction, a BBQ Hoedown with all the trimmings, our awards ceremony, live entertainment, and an assortment of fantastic live auction packages such as a SF Giants Batboy experience, a Warriors Suite for an upcoming game, and much, much more. PAL is still looking for more special auction items so if you wish to have your product or service featured in the silent or live auction, please call us at 650/522-7556.
Individual seats are $175, and tables of eight start at $1,200 with sponsorship opportunities still available.
