Ventura County Sheriff's Foundation 'Salute the Stars' Event


Hyatt Regency, 880 S. Westlake Blvd. Westlake, CA 91361


April 30th, 2016 / 6:00 p.m. ' 10:00 p.m.



The Ventura County Sheriff's Foundation will be hosting their 2016 gala, 'Salute the Stars' at the Hyatt Regency in Westlake Village on Saturday, April 30, 2016.  The evening will feature entertainment as well as a reception, dinner and silent and live auctions.  Come out and meet, mingle and play with members of the Ventura County Sheriff's SWAT Team, Search and Rescue Team, Crime Scene Investigation Unit, Bomb Team, K9 Units and others. 


This year, the Foundation will be honoring Ventura County Deputy Sheriff Mario Molina.  Deputy Molina has proven to be instrumental in the success of many community programs including the 'Shop with A Cop' program allowing kids without the resources to shop with a deputy for Christmas gifts.  Community partnerships are paramount to the Foundation's mission and as such, the selection committee sought to recognize someone who truly embodies the philosophy of building those partnerships with the community. 


The Foundation is a qualified, non-profit 501C (3), which means that your donations qualify as tax deductions. All money contributed goes directly to the Ventura County Sheriff's Foundation's programs and operations, and stays in Ventura County.  Funds raised will allow the Foundation to continue to support the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.
