The Policemen’s Ball, the Palm Beach Police Foundation’s annual fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago paid tribute to the Palm Beach Police Department’s men and women in blue and civilian employees.

The gala drew nearly 600 supporters and friends, including officers and employees from the Palm Beach Police Department, local civic leaders including U.S. Representative Allen West, State Attorney Michael McAuliffe, Former FBI Director Louis Freeh, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, Palm Beach Mayor Gail Coniglio and members of the Town Council of Palm Beach.  Celebrity guests included rocker Rod Stewart and his wife, Penny; legendary musical producer David Foster, supermodel Veronica Webb and CIRCA CEO Chris Del Gatto; Ramona Singer, one of the Real Housewives of New York City and her husband, Mario Singer.

Annie and Michael Falk were the Dinner Chairmen, and Eileen and Brian P. Burns, the past dinner chairmen, served as Honorary Chairmen this year.  Michele and Howard Kessler, winners of this year’s Palm Tree Award given in recognition of their outstanding community service, received the award during a special presentation by John Scarpa, the Foundation President, who cofounded it with Vice President Tim Moran;  and foundation Board Member David Mack.

The evening began with a tented poolside cocktail reception where guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. They were then escorted to the Grand Ballroom where Palm Beach Pipes and Drums played at the entryway followed by the Presentation of the Colors by the Palm Beach Police Department Honor Guard.  The gala took place during the first full moon of the year, and event designer Tom Mathieu masterfully executed the Planetarium-chic design.
