‘What A Girl Wants’ Feature Buff Deputies, Fire Fighters

A NOTE FROM BREVARD COUNTY SHERIFF WAYNE IVEY
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I would like to personally thank all of the members of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office and Brevard County Fire Rescue who participated in today’s “Fashion” show to help raise money for Serene Harbor and Domestic Violence victims.
The friendly competition pitted the “Men of the Fire Department” against the “Incredible Models From the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.” I had the good fortune of serving as the event’s emcee and can tell you that the crowd was moved out of their seats as each model from both agencies walked the runway wearing clothes that were compliments of Dillards in the Melbourne Square Mall.
At the end of the show both groups were gracious enough to pose for photographs while raising even more funds to help support such an incredible organization. This was an incredible event that was part of the annual “What a Girl Wants” fundraiser for Serene Harbor.
As Sheriff, I am always amazed at the hard work our agency and partners in Public Safety do to help protect our citizens from crime and harm, but today’s actions in my opinion clearly demonstrate the cooperation and comradery between these two agencies and the spirit of working together to help protect our citizens.
Please join me in thanking who all made today’s event possible: Agent Chris Sauro, BCSO; Sgt. Steve Fernez, BCSO; Cpl. Leon Maddox, BCSO; Agent Jesse Holten, BCSO; Deputy Tony Gonnelly, BCSO; Agent Dave Jacobs, BCSO; Sgt. Rob Vitaliano, BCSO; Lindsey Deaton, BCSO; Tom Neidert BCFR; Ryan Love BCFR; David Bonta BCFR; Mike Taylor BCFR; Corey Huau BCFR; Will Lilienthal Bruschi, BCFR; and Collen Truit Dillards of Melbourne Square Mall.
