Today's Fort Lauderdale police force is over 720-men and women strong. It includes over 520 full-time law enforcement officers who maintain law and order in our city. Where there is hurt, danger, and pain, the FLPD rushes in to provide assistance and protection.  They deserve our appreciation, and two area retailers are coming together to host a “Thank You Fort Lauderdale Police” benefit party next month.

On Saturday, December 4th from 7pm to 10pm,  Olivier Salon and Spa and the ICRYO wellness center, will ring in the holiday season by presenting an evening of champagne, hors d’oeuvres, music, dancing and live performances.  The benefit party will take place at the Olivier Salon in the River Market Shopping Plaza (2410 N Federal Highway, Ft Lauderdale).  There will be raffles and fun holiday games.

“The holidays are the perfect time to thank our officers for all they do to protect and serve the residents and visitors of South Florida,” says Olivier Manoury of Olivier Salon and Spa.

“It’s also a wonderful time to show our support of the police,” adds Chris Gatti from ICRYO.

All proceeds from the evening will benefit the Love Fund, an organization that aids fallen officers and their families when no other funds are available to do so.  Money collected by the Love Fund has helped to pay for the funerals of officers killed in the line of duty, education for the children of fallen officers, and psychological counseling for officers and immediate family members impacted by the stress of the job. Since 1984, the Love Fund has helped officers through almost any catastrophe that threatens their ability to serve the community, like illness, home damage, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), to name a few.

iCRYO is a national wellness center that offers cryotherapy, iv therapy, red light therapy, infrared sauna, compression therapy, and body sculpting.

Olivier Salon and Spa is a luxury hair salon and spa in the heart of Fort Lauderdale that offers haircuts, color, highlights, and styling as well as manicures, pedicures, lashes, facials, waxing, and Botox.

Tickets for the “Thank You Fort Lauderdale Police Department” holiday party are available now.
