Calverley Service Experts Raise Money for Families of Dallas Officers Killed in Shooting

October 27, 2016

On July 7th, 2016, a peaceful Black Lives Matter-organized protest was coming to an end when shots resonated in Dallas. Mayhem ensued and by the end of the night, nine members of Dallas law enforcement were injured and five lost their lives.

Within days, Dallas business owners and community leaders joined forces to fundraise for the police officers and their relatives. Dos Jefes, a Latin-Asian tapas restaurant, hosted “Dine for Dallas Blue” and all of the proceeds of the dinner and silent auction they held were given to the fallen and injured officers and their families.

Calverley Service Experts General Manager Tony Polendo was more than honored to join the cause.

“I was at my birthday dinner less than a mile away from the events of that horrible evening,” Polendo said. “That night struck a chord for me. As a military veteran, I have absolute respect for anyone who wears a uniform in an endeavor to protect and serve their community.”

“When my friend contacted me to inquire if we would support this charity event by merely attending, I wanted to go beyond and not only attend, but donate our time and effort as well.”

Tony and the Calverley Service Experts team coordinated with Lennox to auction off a new heating and air conditioning system with complimentary installation at the Dine for Dallas Blue event. Below are a few pictures of the installation.

 
“I am both thankful and appreciative for the possibility to have participated in such a incredible event,” Polendo said.

From your friends at Air Engineers Service Experts, we are truly sorry for the loss of the Dallas Police Department and for the relatives of Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael J. Smith, Brent Thompson, and Patrick Zamarripa.
