U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz to Serve as the Keynote Speaker for the Volusia Sheriff’s Foundation Salute to the Stars Gala presented by Halifax Health

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. – (August 6, 2019) – The Volusia County Sheriff’s Foundation will host its second annual Salute to the Stars Gala presented by Halifax Health on Friday, September 13, 2019 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort.  This year, the foundation is pleased to have U.S. Representative Michael Waltz as the keynote speaker.

“Our law enforcement officers are true examples of servant leaders who dedicate their lives to protecting our community here in Volusia County,” Rep. Waltz says.  “I’m humbled to keynote this year’s gala to honor their service and sacrifices.”

The gala’s proceeds will be used to fund the mission of the Volusia County Sheriff’s Foundation, which is to provide support for training, technology and equipment not funded by county tax dollars.  Some of the support that the foundation has provided has sent deputies to trainings in management, less lethal force tactics, public safety communications combatting human trafficking and assisting victims, and to the Florida F.B.I. National Academy.  

In addition, a portion of the funds raised will be dedicated to the Halifax Health Level II trauma program and the helicopter Halifax Health and Volusia County share for searches and transports.

The gala will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a cocktail hour and conclude with the band Unkle Funk.  For sponsorships and ticket information, please go to vcsfoundation.org or call 386.221.2682.
