A prestigious group from the community gathered at the home of George & Abeer Hage last Thursday. The delightful evening was an intimate gathering with a cocktail reception and plated dinner to celebrate the history preserved by the William B. Kolender San Diego County Sheriff’s Museum and Educational Center. The event, which hosted esteemed guests such as Sheriff William Gore, Congressman Issa, Jeanne Larson, Leo Hamel and so many more, proved to be a success for the organization.The generosity of the attendees netted the museum with precisely the gift they needed; the ability to pay off the mortgage.
The museum counts on the private donations from the community to keep the doors open as admission is free to the public and is a source of education for school children throughout the year. Next improvement… a website.
