After a two-and-a-half-year absence, the 20th Anniversary Blue Ribbon Ball was everything we could have hoped for. We were honoured by the presence of Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC, the Minister for Police The Hon Paul Toole MP, and the NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb APM, and we were honoured also by the presence of serving police and Police Legatees, all of whom came together to celebrate all that is important and joyful and worthy of remembrance.
Thank you to everyone who came along to participate in both silent remembrance and joyful resilience, the sharing of stories and the energy of the dance floor.
And thank you also to our Charity Partners Police Bank and Police Association of NSW, Platinum sponsor Hyundai Australia, Gold Sponsors EML, Hicksons, Motorola Australia, and Makinson d’Apice, Silver Sponsors Linfox Armaguard, Carroll & O’Dea, Dimeo, Norton Rose Fulbright, and AHA NSW, and Bronze Sponsors Don Cameron and Assoc, and Maddocks, without whom this event would not have been possible.
It was our most successful Ball to date, raising a huge amount of money for the Police Family and helping to spread the word throughout the community of the strong connections between our Police Legatees, and the key role NSW Police Legacy plays in supporting them.
