SAL 2nd Annual Cioppino & Heroes Dinner Night a Success

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Activities League held it’s 2nd Annual Cioppino & Heroes Dinner Night, Good Claws Great Cause on Oct. 17th.  270 community leaders, businesses and residents came to the venue site, the SportsHouse, for a cioppino dinner made by The Fish Market.  The room was transformed into a gothic type theme and staff were dressed as “Super Heroes”.  SAL honored Kaiser Permanente with the SAL Role Model Award for Respect.  The SAL Role Model Award for Loyalty went to Barry Jolette and Connie Paniagua of the San Mateo Credit Union.  At this year’s event, we also awarded Armando Garcia with the SAL Youth of the Year Award; Deputy Gaby Chaghouri with the Deputy of the Year Award; and the Sheriff’s Award went to the Deputy Sheriff’s Association.

A special thanks to all of our sponsors: our Event Title Sponsor, Rocketfuel; our Live Auction Sponsors were San Mateo Credit Union and Hannig Law Firm; our Table Sponsors were Cargill, Sheriff Greg Munks, Recology, Towne Ford, Franklin Templeton, PCRC, Out Now Bail Bonds, Coca-Cola, Kirk McGowan, Kaiser Permanente, PG&E and Fresh Takes; our Event Sponsors were The SportsHouse, The Fish Market, AM Party Rentals, Bianchini’s, Gasparini & Beals Vineyards, City Pub, Annette Kelly, Crystal Springs Catering, KL&P Marketing.

The live auction was a big hit.  Each live auction package was modeled on a runway.  We had LouSeal of the Giants, 2 Cheerleaders from the Warriors, Hall of Famer YA Tittle modeled a football package, Mayor Alicia Aguirre and Pete Liebengood modeled a spa and golf package, deputies modeled jail tours and range packages, Kiwoba of Rocketfuel, modeled a fly fishing trip, the General Manager for the SportsHouse modeled an aviation package and our Sal mascot the Salamander even modeled one of the packages.

The funds raised will go to our SAL programs in San Mateo County, providing tutoring, mentoring, youth diversion for those first time offenders, and programs that promote healthy lifestyle choices.

We honored Kaiser Permanente –with the SAL Respect Award and the San Mateo Credit Union – Barry Jolette and Connie Paniagua with the SAL Loyalty Award.

2nd Annual Community Support Campaign

S.A.L. is running it's 2nd Annual Community Support Campaign to raise funds for the much needed programs in our community. These programs will provide disconnected youth with mentors; match first time juvenile offenders who would be entering the juvenile justice system with a case manager through our Youth Diversion program; provide tutoring to struggling students to reduce the number of high school drop-outs; educate students and families about healthier lifestyles through nutrition education, physical fitness, mentoring, and case management; provide teens with leadership training and skills that keep them involved in school and community service.

We are looking for leaders that will say, "I want to give HOPE to a child in our own community". Please view the video below and learn about some of the issues San Mateo County is experiencing and what S.A.L. is doing to combat them.
