Graves Garrett Supports Kansas City Missouri Police Foundation Event
The Kansas City Missouri Police Foundation, an organization of which Todd Graves is a founding member, recently held its first benefit in an effort to raise funds for the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department. The event, which was attended by more than 500 supporters, featured keynote speaker and anti-crime activist John Walsh of the popular TV show “America’s Most Wanted.” Honorary chairs of the event included Kansas City Mayor Sly James, Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forté, and foundation board member Don Wagner and his wife, Jean.
The Police Foundation of Kansas City was established to provide vital support to the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department with the ultimate mission of reducing crime and ensuring greater public safety. With approximately 81 percent of the department’s budget spent on personnel and 14 percent on contractual services, there is only 5 percent left to spend on new equipment, technology, community outreach, youth programs and specialized training. The foundation supports programs, projects and initiatives that are strategically focused to enhance the department’s policing strategies and ensure the highest level of police services to the Kansas City community.
The event, held Feb. 10 at The Muehlebach Hotel, included dinner and a live auction. Graves Garrett was a proud sponsor of the fundraiser.
