New Date Announced for 2017 Law and Order Ball

Posted on Sep 30, 2017

Event Rescheduled to October 21, 2017 after Postponement due to Hurricane Irma

The Rotary Club of Fort Myers South is excited to announce the new date of the 2017 Law & Order Ball is Saturday, October 21, 2017. The Ball will still take place at Germain Arena (11000 Everblades Parkway, Estero, FL 33928) at 6 p.m. Proceeds from the evening are directed to the Rotary Club of Fort Myers South Foundation, which benefits law enforcement youth programs and many other community projects.

Taking into consideration local law enforcement’s continued efforts to help restore the community post-Hurricane Irma, the new date was selected with careful consideration of previously scheduled community events, local law enforcement schedules, and the host facility’s availability. Rotary Club of Fort Myers
South member Roger Mercado Jr. stated, “The law enforcement groups of Lee County took such great care of the community before, during and after the hurricane; we’re even more excited to give back and celebrate them at this year’s Law & Order Ball. We understand there may be conflicts with the new date, but hope the majority of supporters will still be able to attend.”

Tickets are sold out. However, those who wish to donate to the Fund-A-Need Initiative can do here. The agencies have identified the need of funds for high risk and high liability training and items that would assist in keeping the public and officers safe – items like tactical helmets, shields, and body armor and vests, training mats, driving simulation training, shooter simulation training and AEDs (automated external defibrillator) were identified by the departments as areas of need.

The following Lee County law enforcement agencies are beneficiaries of the Rotary Club of Fort Myers South’s
fundraising through the Law & Order Ball: Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Fort Myers Police Department,
Cape Coral Police Department, Sanibel Police Department, Florida Gulf Coast University Police
Department, Florida SouthWestern State College Police Department and Lee County Port Authority
