The annual Love Fund Ball event is Key West Police Department’s largest fundraiser and was held on Sept. 22 at Margaritaville Resort in Key West. The proceeds provide essential help to local Key West Police officers in the event of an emergency, crisis, or death in the family; the fund was especially helpful to the officers who were affected by Hurricane Irma. The community really steps up to sponsor and donate to the silent auction. The event celebrates the men and women of the Key West Police Department for the hard work they do.
