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

October 27, 2016

Three days after America celebrated Independence Day, a peaceful Black Lives Matter-organized protest was ending when shots rang out in Dallas. Chaos ensued and by the end of the night, nine members of Dallas law enforcement were injured and five lost their lives.

Within a week, Dallas business owners and community leaders came together to raise funds for the police officers and their relatives. Dos Jefes, a local bistro, hosted “Dine for Dallas Blue” and all of the money raised from the dinner and silent auction they hosted were given to the fallen and injured officers and their loved ones.

Calverley Service Experts General Manager Tony Polendo was more than honored to help.

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

“When my friend reached out to ask if we would support this great cause by merely attending, I wanted to show our support to not only attend, but contribute our time and effort as well.”

Tony and the Calverley Service Experts team coordinated with Lennox to auction off a new heating and cooling system with complimentary installation at the Dine for Dallas Blue event. Take a look at the pictures of the installation.

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

From your family at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we are truly sorry for the loss of the Dallas law enforcement community and for the loved ones of Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael J. Smith, Brent Thompson, and Patrick Zamarripa.
