Event Beneficiary...The Gold Shield Foundation

Originally our purpose was that of aiding the surviving spouses and children of law enforcement officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty, the Foundation’s mission has grown as we have diligently listened to the needs from within the fire and police communities in which we serve. Today, the Gold Shield Foundation works to provide aid for law enforcement officers, firefighters, their spouses and children, whose lives have been altered as a result of line of duty deaths and injuries.
