Beyond the Badge Gala
The Officer David M. Petzold Memorial Foundation is proud to host the 3rd annual "Beyond the Badge" Gala- A night honoring outstanding community service.
This awards program was launched in 2010 to salute the unsung heroes who go the extra mile to help us through tough times, and to recognize those individuals whose energy and vision make out community better. This award is presented to those among us who don't hesitate to lend a hand with no expectation of reward or recognition.
The evening includes formal sit down dinner, open bar, live music by BIGG ROMEO, and presentation of the Petzold Award for Outstanding Community Service. The fee is $75.00/person. This evening of dining, dancing and fellowship helps support the Petzold Foundation and its groundbreaking projects.
Proceeds from this event directly benefit the citizens and business people of Lehigh County by providing funding to the David M. Petzold Digital Forencis Lab of Lehigh County. This state of the art, digital forensics lab is instrumental to law enforcement agencies at the local and county level to assist in the more efficiently and effectively complete electronic evidence collection, compute forensics, battling on-line child predators and investigating technology based crimes.
The Officer David M. Petzold Memorial Foundation is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization.
