Italian American Police Society of New Jersey

Annual Gala Postponed due to Health Crisis

Certainly as you are aware, the dynamics of this public health crisis are rapidly changing as more cases become identified. Although our Gala is our signature event, of which we are proud, we certainly don’t want to place people at risk. As a law enforcement organization we must be mindful that public safety personnel are vital to keeping order in a crisis and therefore must take every step necessary to protect themselves.

In addition Governor Murphy has issued a request that all non essential public gatherings of more than 250 persons be cancelled.

Based upon all of these factors we are CANCELING the Gala and RESCHEDULING it for September 26, 2020.

Please assist us in helping to contact attendees in your groups to notify them.

Anyone who would like a refund should contact me or Chairman Sepe and we will ensure that you get a full refund swiftly. If not we will simply move the event forward as currently planned to Saturday, September 26th.  Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.   I will be contacting the honorees personally to explain the situation and our plan. Please use caution to protect yourself and your families during this difficult time.

Fraternally yours

William Schievella, President
Italian American Police Society of New Jersey
