Sheriff's Office members help out during the holidays!

Sheriff's Office members county-wide are helping out their community this holiday season. Here are just a few examples:
Detention Deputies Reid and Pettry from the Marathon jail collected toys this week for Holiday Helpers of the Florida Keys.

Chi Sigma Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi and it’s President Lt. Lee Ann Holroyd of The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office recently held a dinner/dance to benefit The Monroe Association of ReMARCable Citizens at The Tavernier Elks Club.  Over 100 people enjoyed an Italian Buffet donated by DJ’s Diner and a choice of desserts donated by MARC Board Member Mike Forster of Mangrove Mikes. 12 beautifully decorated Christmas trees were donated by local businesses for their silent auction. $5,500.00 was raised by the Sorority. Presenting the check, left to right:  Lt. Lee Ann Holroyd, Trish Biondoletti, MARC Exec. Director, Diana Flenard and MARC Board members, Mary VandenBrook, Sue Harrison and Sheriff Rick Ramsay.
