Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our communities, we received communication from Brevard County that we will not be able to host our 5K to Launch Awareness in Sandpoint Park this year. We are disappointed in the outcome of this year’s events, but the health and safety of our families, friends, and communities is the most important thing right now.
If you did sign up for the 5K before the pandemic began, we will be issuing refunds for registration fees. Please make sure to check your emails this week for more information so that we can get these processed as quickly as possible.
While we are sad that we won’t be able to walk together as a community this year, we are currently exploring virtual options that will still allow us to achieve the same goal of raising awareness while also “gathering” in a way that is safe and in compliance with local guidelines. Once we have ironed out the details of how that process will work, we will be sure to update everyone through social media and on our website.
If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us through direct message, by phone, or by email. As always, we want to thank you for your support and patience as we try to adapt to the changes this year has brought us. We look forward to the day where we can see you all again in person.
Our 4th Annual Dinner Banquet was an absolute blast! This year was truly the biggest night of the year for us, and we were honored to have a room packed full of our friends, family, consistent supporters, and many first-time attendees. We had over 20 men and women nominated for our law enforcement based Decisions Scholarship, a full silent auction, and amazing food provided by Pickles Catering. We also had some surprises throughout the evening including a special video message from our friend Officer Daniels, and we also got to surprise our friend and event host Trooper Steve Montiero with the #KeriAnneDeMottMatters Award. It was an amazing evening that set the tone for the upcoming year, and we are so excited for what's to come thanks to everyone that supports our family and our message. Check out the slideshow above (photos by the amazingly talented Sherri Claudio) to see all of the highlights of the night!
Mark your calendar for next year's 5th Annual Dinner Banquet on January 9th, 2021 (Keri's 26th Birthday)!
We would like to give a special thanks to to so many people! Thank you to Ken and Cynthia White, Maury and Crystal Zavallo, and all of our volunteers for making the night truly amazing! We also want to thank Pickles Catering for a 5-star menu and Diane Vaught for the always amazing starfish cupcakes! We also want to thank all of the companeis and individuals that contributed to our silent auction; your donations have helped raise funds that will allow us to travel farther and speak to more people than ever before. Thank you to everyone that came out and made the evening so so special!
