BURKE will be sponsoring Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Foundation’s (CMPF) annual leadership luncheon, in addition to designing a program for the event.
CMPF will host its annual leadership luncheon on May 16 in Uptown Charlotte at the Westin Hotel, with victim’s rights advocate, John Walsh as the keynote speaker. The luncheon provides funding for the special needs and projects of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
Walsh is an Emmy®-winning, internationally renowned host and executive producer of America’s Most Wanted – the groundbreaking reality program that helped law enforcement capture more than 1,100 dangerous fugitives and bring home more than 50 missing children since its debut in 1988.
He was also the leading lobbying force behind the passage of the Missing Children’s Act, which resulted in the founding of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). The NCMEC is the premier child protection non-profit, providing invaluable resources to parents, children and law enforcement in the United States and internationally.
The cost per table of eight is $3,000 with 100% of the funds going to future Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Foundation projects. An officer from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department will be seated at each table, and table hosts are invited to a VIP reception with Bob Woodruff scheduled the morning of the luncheon.
