San Diego Police Foundation hosts ‘Friends of the Badge Luncheon’

The San Diego Police Foundation and “America’s Finest” officers are hosting the “Friends of the Badge Luncheon,” 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 26 at the Valley¬†View Casino Center, 3500 Sports Arena Blvd. The luncheon is the Police Foundation’s biggest fundraiser of the year and proceeds help insure that programs critical to public safety receive funding that is not available through the city’s budget. This year’s theme is “Keeping Kids Safe Online” through the SafetyNet: Smart Cyber Choices program. SafetyNet is collaborative program of the Police Foundation and the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. It is the largest Internet safety provider in the region and has trained more than 75,000 middleschool-age children, teaching them how to stay out of harm’s way as they venture into the Internet world. Tickets for the luncheon are $100 per person, with tables for $1,000. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For details, contact Dayna Klock at dayna.spf@gmail.com or call (619) 232-2130.
