Last week, the first Honor at the Castle Gala was held at Oheka Castle in Huntington, on Long Island, New York. The event, hosted by Memorial Fund supporters Stuart and Lisa Levine of The Zellman Group, LLC, was held to pay tribute to America’s peace officers and their families, and to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Museum.
The Gala honored Nassau County Police Officers Geoffrey Breitkopf and Michael Califano, and ATF Officer John Capano, and their families, some of whom were in attendance.
"It's just nice to see after all the months that have past, to see my husband still remembered and honored and to know that he's not going to be forgotten ... that so much is being done for him," said Jacqueline Califano.
Actor Mark Feuerstein emceed the event and singer and songwriter Range performed his new song, “Lay it down.” When asked about the song’s meaning, he said, "It's about the police officers and soldiers that put their life on the line everyday to keep us free and keep us happy.”
A big thank you to all who attended the special event for their generous contributions to the Museum.
