Proud Host of the Pasco County L.E.O. Family Fun Day
A Day to Celebrate Pasco County's Law Enforcement Personnel
A Day of Free Fun for All Current & Former L.E.O.'s, Civilian Employees and Their Families
In 2013, Arndrea and Craig Laporte wanted to find a way to acknowledge Pasco County’s law enforcement officers and their families in a positive and fun way. They considered many possibilities, none of which seemed feasible at the time. The result of this desire to recognize the officers, employees and their families who give so much to ensure a safe community was a free day of fun for the families, supported by local business partners. The Pasco County Law Enforcement Family Fun Day was created and first implemented in 2014.
With the blessings and cooperation of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #29, a beautiful site on Bell Lake was secured. This secure and private lakeside setting is the perfect place for the close-knit law enforcement families to come together and relax in a familial atmosphere.
Craig's law firm, Laporte, Mulligan & Werner- Watkins, P.A spearheaded a drive to build a core of sponsors who were like-minded about sending thanks to our law enforcement community. The initial goal was simply to generate a sufficient revenue stream to pay for the day. As Craig and his supporters began to approach businesses, it became apparent that the financial support would exceed expectations.
Pasco County is the only county in Florida without a permanent memorial to its fallen law enforcement officers. Another organization, the Pasco County Fallen Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Benefit Foundation had just been created to rectify this unfortunate situation. With the Fun Day Business Partners' approval, Craig pledged that any funds above those needed for the Family Fun Day would be donated to the worthy cause promoted by the Foundation.
Since the first LEO Funday, the concept has grown, and every year more and more business partners join with Craig, Arndrea and Laporte, Mulligan & Werner- Watkins, P.A to make the day a resounding success.
It became apparent that this event will go on for years into the future. In order to make the program bigger and better, LEO Funday, Inc. was created as a charitable corporation, with IRS 501 (c)3 status. This allows the corporation to seek both business partners and charitable contributions to continue what is fast becoming a tradition in the Pasco Law Enforcement Officer Family circle. LEO Funday, Inc. is now run by a Board of Directors, whose sole focus is to continue to bring smiles to the families of our law enforcement community, and raise funds for worthwhile law enforcement charitable causes.
