Mark Wills Attends Gala To Benefit National Law Enforcement Museum

Country music entertainer Mark Wills recently accepted a personal invitation to attend the National Law Enforcement Museum’s 2nd Annual Gala this past Wednesday, October 12, 2011. Held in Washington, D.C. at the Grand Hyatt, this year’s gala celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Museum, scheduled to open in late 2013.

“I feel so honored to have had the opportunity to join in such a noteworthy occasion,” Wills stated. “To be able to attend and celebrate such a milestone – 20 years! – was truly a privilege, and to be part of the efforts to build an honorarium for our men and women of service was befitting.”

As a sworn reserve deputy sheriff in Cherokee Country, Georgia, Wills joined other members of the Gala’s Celebrity Cabinet: Master of Ceremonies Richard Belzer (Actor; Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), the Museum’s National Spokesperson Vincent D’Onofrio (Actor; Law & Order: Criminal Intent) and, the evening’s recipient of the Distinguished Service Award, Dick Wolf (Emmy Award winning producer; the Law & Order franchise) for an evening of celebrating and remembering. As an added bonus, the 600-plus guests were offered the first glimpses of various artifacts and the Museum’s Hall of Remembrance, an “exhibit designed to tell the stories behind the names currently inscribed on the national monument in Washington’s Judiciary Square.”
