A celebration barbecue honoring the men and women of the various law enforcement agencies for their dedicated service during the Democratic National Convention. Please join us at Pershing Square for food, drink and the summer sounds of Joe's Band.
There will also be a special presentation to recognize Chief of Police, Bernard Parks. .00 charge to the public with net proceeds going to benefit the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation. If you want to pre-purchase tickets, please contact Heidi Beeks at (213) 624-2146.
Heidi has asked that you call her number as often as possible to order tickets and jam her phone lines. The BBQ fee will be waived to anyone showing up wearing a black bandana over their face. Complimentary pepper spray and rubber bullets will be served up courtesy of the LAPD. Participants are asked to bring anything that makes loud and disturbing noises. Following the BBQ, the nearby Jewelry Mart will be hosting a unique 'black bloc' jewelry sale with special discounts to masked shoppers dressed in black.
Please be on time because we don't want to keep Chief Parks waiting.
