The 11-99 foundation has been helping highway patrol officers and their families for decades. It's a wonderful organization and I'm happy to be a donor and a volunteer.

I was asked to volunteer for the CHP 1199 golf tournament apx 29 years ago. It has been such an amazing experience. Over the years I have brought others to volunteer from my own family and my employer Boeing. It is such a great organization, to hear the recipients tell you their experiences first hand is life changing. It's even a greater honor to see the same golfers year after year tell you this is their favorite tournament and charity event. Thank you for this opportunity. Yvette Adriano

Years ago I was asked if I would be available to help with the CHP 11-99 golf tournament. At first I was like what is that? After the first one I worked I have never missed one tournament, the people are all so committed to helping the fallen officers and their families. I have heard numerous young adults, and family members talk about how this organization has helped them in their time of need. This is an amazing organization and I'm proud to have the opportunity to be a part of it. Thank you, Jeanette Countess

I have volunteered for the 11-99 foundation at a number of their fundraising events over the past 30 years. I was a Real Estate Agent seven years ago and one of my clients, a single mother with two teenagers, is a CHP Dispatcher/ Supervisor. I told her of my involvement with the Foundation and she shared stories how the Foundation had helped co-workers. The following years this client/CHP employee has volunteered at fundraising events. When her daughter, then her son entered college 11-99 foundation began helping with their tuition. 11-99 foundation has made it possible for both her children to continue their studies toward graduation.

The 11-99 Foundation has helped the granddaughter we raised to get through two years of college without debt. We are ever so grateful that this non profit works so tirelessly to support our law enforcement family in so many ways.

The 11-99 Foundation is an outstanding origination that helps those who help us. They not only help those in their time of great need, but they also provide college tuitions to countless children of the men and women who protect us each and every day and in some cases, lay down their life doing so. I could tell story after story of The Foundation helping those who need it, but trust its is the finest origination around.

I have been a member of the Foundation for several years. During that time I have witnessed the outstanding generosity of the board and it's members in providing much needed assistance to California Highway Patrol employees and their families in a time of tragedy or distress.
In addition, the Foundation's scholarship program for family members of CHP employees has provided the opportunity to many for a quality education. This is a truly "giving" organization

I have volunteered for many years with this organization and can see how much they truly help the CHP and their families in time of need. Not only that, but also providing scholarships to CHP children to aid their college tuition is terrific. What a truly marvelous organization.

I have been a member since the day I retired from the CHP. The people running it, Judith Levine and Bruce Meyer, to name just two, are of the highest caliber. Gordon Graham, a CHP classmate of mine, was selected as the single person to help law enforcement nationally more than anyone else, two years ago. I think it was IPSLEA, which presented the award. Gordon, a brilliant and kind man, was just voted onto the 11-99 Foundation Board of Directors this year. I regard him as the single most important person in the history of the CHP. The 11-99 Foundation always places the families of CHP Officers who have been killed or critically injured first. They also provide scholarships to a plethora of deserving CHP family members. If someone tries to use the 11-99 Foundation to get out of a traffic ticket, he will be summarily dismissed from the organization. Indeed, it is a terrific charitable organization. I am Greg Mullendore, retired CHP 8454

In 2005 my wife volunteered for the 11-99 Foundation golf tournament at Los Coyotes Country Club. It was her experience there that prompted me to become a volunteer as well. I was an active CHP officer at the time and it was my involvement with the 11-99 Foundation that has led me to volunteer every year since. in July 2016 I suffered three Strokes in one week. I had seen all the wonderful things the foundation does but it wasn't until my Strokes that I realized what a close family we all are. Although there weren't any specific services for retired officers they were right there to offer help and support. thank you Manny Padilla, Rebecca Centner Brianna Esquivel and Foundation staff in Fountain Valley. I hope to be back on the course volunteering in 2018.

As the spouse of a 27 year CHP veteran, it is reassuring to know that the CHP 11-99 Foundation exists to support officers and their families. Whether in times of crisis, such as supporting the family of a fallen officer, or through the on-going support of programs like the 11-99 Scholarship program, the CHP 11-99 Foundation works diligently to support those who have dedicated their lives to serving others as law enforcement officers.
The Foundation provides a vital role, one that is not provided by the CHP department itself. Without the foundation, many families would struggle financially during times of death, illness etc. Thank you CHP 11-99 Foundation for the work you do!!

The CHP 11-99 Foundation is a remarkable nonprofit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of California Highway Patrol personnel as well as their families. I am proud to be a 33 year member and to have been able to spurt this many worth while causes.
The effort and assistance they do for California Highway Patrol officers and their families is magnificent, chartable, bighearted and totally worthwhile. The majority of people involved are genuine, diligent and lazar focused on bringing awareness to the organization and its efforts to aid Officers and families in their time of need. I cant think a better way to donate my time

The Chp 11-99 Foundation is one of the most amazing nonprofits I know of. I have been a volunteer at their fundraising events for over 20 years and each time I am thrilled to help them out. The work and help they do for CHP officers and their families is wonderful and generous and so needed. Everyone involved is friendly, polite, hard-working and they all are dedicated to making sure that all the monies made goes directly to the officers and families. The foundation is truly an inspiration.

Received a scholarship for my son to attend college. It is the only scholarship he was awarded after applying to many different scholarship offers. We are so thankful for the award and it has helped him to be debt free for this school year.

The 11-99 Foundation has been wonderful and supportive to our family. In 1995 my CHP husband was shot and bludgeoned on a freeway stop to assist a pedestrian. Three off - duty LEO'S stopped the assault and called for aid. My husband survived the assault and the 11-99 Foundation was immediately there for our family. We felt so cared for. Now our children are in college and have been recipients of scholarships provided by this wonderful, caring, and supportive organization. An A+ organization that provides an outstanding service!

My father was a Sergeant with the Highway Patrol when I applied to colleges. I was awarded three scholarships which was extremely helpful. I owe my degree to their organization. I have also seen first hand how they have helped the families of officers that were seriously hurt or killed. From providing vehicles, resources and support, I will always be grateful. Thank you for all you do..from a college graduate, student and now an officer with the highway patrol...I will never forget!
