Donation Caps Off Dinner with LCSO


Pickup the Ball Teammates were looking forward to a fun evening of mentoring and dinner at Jing Du Japanese Buffet in Fort Myers, but weren’t expecting what happened after they started eating.

The dinner, sponsored by Sheriff Mike Scott, was attended by five sheriffs, each sitting and talking to 3 or 4 Teammates.  The officers have expressed an interest in getting to know the Teammates beyond their thoughts and feelings about law enforcement relationships, to discuss their careers, dreams and futures.  Several of the Teammates made important connections with the officers present.

But Pickup the Ball made new friends tonight: Carol and Richard Metzger, representing the Robert J. Gutenberg Charitable Foundation came by during the meal to express their support and enthusiasm for our programs, and to offer a sizable contribution to help support our Teammates in their efforts to improve themselves, their relationships and their community.

Pickup the Ball is overwhelmed by the support of the Metzgers.  We are committed to making the most of every penny given to us to support the young men and women of this community.
