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

October 27, 2016

On July 7th, 2016, a peaceful Black Lives Matter-organized protest was coming to an end when shots rang out in Dallas. Panic ensued and by night’s end, nine Dallas officers were injured and five lost their lives.

Within a week, Dallas business owners and community leaders united to raise money for the police officers and their families. Dos Jefes, a local bistro, hosted “Dine for Dallas Blue” and all of the funds raised by 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 out for my birthday dinner a few blocks away from the horror that occurred that evening,” Polendo remembered. “That night struck a chord for me. As a military veteran, I have the utmost respect for anyone who wears a uniform in an endeavor to protect and serve the community.”

“When my colleague reached out to see if we would support this charity event by merely attending, I wanted to go beyond and 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 HVAC system with complimentary installation at the Dine for Dallas Blue event. Take a look at the pictures of the installation.

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

From your friends and family at Finch Air Conditioning & Heating Inc, we are truly sorry for the loss of the Dallas police officer community and for the relatives of Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael J. Smith, Brent Thompson, and Patrick Zamarripa.
