“We are proud to continue our partnership with the Cleveland Cavaliers," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman & CEO of the Memorial Fund. “Coming together again at The Q to honor our nation’s law enforcement officers, while enjoying a fun night of basketball, is sure to be a great occasion—and a great way to raise awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund." 

The Memorial Fund spearheads the efforts to build the privately-funded National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC, which will tell the story of American law enforcement through exhibits, collections, research, and education. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton serve as chairs of the Museum’s National Honorary Campaign Committee, which also includes seven former attorneys general of the United States, as well as other former government officials and celebrities, including Honorary Chairman Clint Eastwood.
