East Side Partnership to Honor Donors at Stamford K-9 Police Event

The East Side Partnership, Inc. will honor supporters of its Bravo Police Dogs program at a benefit to be held at Stamford landmark United House Wrecking Design Center, located at 535 Hope Street on Thursday, September 30th, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.


The East Side Partnership’s long history of support for and cooperation with the Stamford Police Department represents key elements of its redevelopment goals.  In an effort to further support this important partnership, The East Side Partnership created the Bravo Police Dogs program to expanded its funding and support of the Stamford Police Department’s K-9 Units.

The East Side Partnership’s commitment to enhancing the K-9 Unit comes in response to the Stamford Police Department’s increased demands for service, decreased staffing levels, and budget restrictions.

Tax-deductable donations to The East Side Partnership Bravo Police Dogs program will help the Stamford Police Foundation provide added officer safety and labor-saving K-9 units without increasing the department’s overall budgetary requirements.

K-9 units trained for public order enforcement; search and rescue; drug and explosive detection reduce the number of officers required to respond to various situations and resolve them more quickly and safely as well as improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the entire Police Department.

Stamford Police Chief Robert Nivakoff will recognize major contributors to The East Side Partnership’s Bravo Police Dog program, whose donations will be very generously matched on a two-for-one basis by SAC Capital founder Steven Cohen.

Interested and concerned members of the public are invited to attend the benefit. Admission at the door is a tax-deductable $25 contribution to the East Side Partnership—Bravo Police Dog program.

Donors will be treated to a demonstration by Stamford Police K-9 officers during the event.
