Hundreds of employees of the Broward Sheriff’s Office and their immediate families converged on Robbins Park in Davie recently for Sheriff Scott Israel’s BSO Employee Appreciation Picnic… It was a picture-perfect day, which helped insure a truly memorable event for adults and children! The picnic was hosted by the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County!
“It was obvious that everyone was having a grand time, being with colleagues and family members in what can only be described as an old-fashioned, home style picnic,” said Drew Romanovitz, Board Chair of the Sheriff’s Foundation.. There was great food, six bounce houses, a hay-ride wagon, paintball, a petting farm and numerous demonstrations, such as the K9 and ERT demonstrations. One of the most popular booths was the Dunk Tank, where people had the opportunity to dunk their favorite firefighter or BSO deputy in a water tank. The pulsating music, mixed by a very talented DJ, kept the energy going and laughter filled the air!”
The event was made possible by more than a dozen sponsors and underwriters, including MetLife, Anidjar & Levine, Broward Health, Festival Flea Market, Teamsters Local 769, Forts, BX Burger Zone, Air Innovations, Rejuvenate and Rick Case. The food was catered by DelVecchio’s Restaurant.
Sheriff Israel told his staff how much he appreciated them… and all they do. Midway during the picnic, Drew Romanovitz along with the Sheriff and Ira Goldberg presented special awards of appreciation to the sponsors. These included MetLife, Anidjar & Levine, BX Burger Zone, DelVecchios Pizzeria, Broward Health, Air Innovations, Festival Flea Market, Rejuvenate, Forts, Teamsters Local 769 and Rick Case.
Special thanks were extended to Captain Ira Goldberg, who was in charge of organizing the BSO Employee family picnic. He worked along with some BSO employees Stephen Greenberger, Norma McGraw, Karla Sobenes-Desme and Captain Jan Jordan to name but a few, who helped insure the success of the event.
