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

October 27, 2016

Three days after America celebrated Independence Day, a peaceful Black Lives Matter-organized protest was concluding when shots resonated in Dallas. Mayhem ensued and by the end of the night, nine Dallas officers were injured and five lost their lives.

Within a week, Dallas business owners and community leaders came together to fundraise for the police officers and their loved ones. Dos Jefes, tapas bar, hosted “Dine for Dallas Blue” and all of the proceeds of the dinner and silent auction they held were given to the fallen and injured officers and their loved ones.

Calverley Service Experts General Manager Tony Polendo was more than honored to join the cause.

“I was celebrating my birthday dinner less than a mile away from the terrible events of that evening,” Polendo said. “That night struck a chord for me. As a military veteran, I have complete and total respect for any individual who wears a uniform in an endeavor to protect and serve our community.”

“When my associate called to ask if we would support this charity event by merely attending, I wanted to show our support to not only attend, but donate our time and effort as well.”

Tony and the Calverley Service Experts team collaborated with Lennox to auction off a new heating and air conditioning system with free installation at the Dine for Dallas Blue event. Check out the pictures below of the installation.

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

From your friends at A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, 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.
