Calverley Service Experts Raise Money for Families of Dallas Officers Killed in Shooting

October 27, 2016

On July 7th, 2016, a peaceful Black Lives Matter-organized protest was coming to an end when shots resonated in Dallas. Mayhem ensued and by the time everything calmed, nine Dallas police officers were injured and five lost their lives.

Within days, Dallas business owners and community leaders came together to fundraise for the police officers and their loved ones. Dos Jefes, a Latin-Asian tapas restaurant, hosted “Dine for Dallas Blue” and all of the proceeds of the dinner and silent auction they held were given to the fallen and injured officers and their loved ones.

Tony Polendo, General Manager of Calverley Service Experts in Fort Worth, was more than honored to get involved.

“I was celebrating my birthday dinner less than a mile away from the events of that horrible evening,” Polendo recounted. “That night struck a chord for me. As a military veteran, I have the utmost respect for any person who wears a uniform in an effort to protect and serve their community.”

“When my colleague called to see if we would support this charity event by merely attending, I wanted to go beyond and not only attend, but contribute our time and effort as well.”

Tony and the Calverley Service Experts team collaborated with Lennox to auction off a new HVAC system with complimentary installation at the Dine for Dallas Blue event. Check out the pictures below of the installation.

 
“I am both grateful and appreciative for the chance to have participated in such a incredible event,” Polendo said.

From your family at Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air, A Service Experts Company, we are truly sorry for the loss of the Dallas police officer community and for the loved ones of Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael J. Smith, Brent Thompson, and Patrick Zamarripa.
