On April 5, David Lerner, founder and CEO of David Lerner Associates, joined with GLIRC President Mike Polansky, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, and Nassau County Legislator Rose Walker to present a donation of $10,000 to the Nassau Police Benevolent Association (PBA) representing the family of fallen Officer Geoffrey J. Breitkopf. Breitkopf, a Nassau County Police Officer, was tragically killed in the line of duty in Massapequa Park on March 12. He leaves behind his wife, Paula, and two young boys, Conor and Owen.
$5000 came directly from the GLIRC-managed Long Island Police Crisis Fund that is financed by the proceeds of the annual David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation Run, and the other $5000 was a direct donation by David Lerner Associates.
David Lerner Associates and GLIRC will continue efforts to raise funds for Long Island police officers and their families through the 20th Annual David Lerner Associates Long Island Police Appreciation Run, to be held on Thursday, June 9 at Eisenhower Park.
