Members from throughout California will drive and fly to San Diego for the nonprofit PROTECT AND DEFEND on June 7 2008 from 7:00PM to 10:030PM. The event is being hosted by Pecs Bar (2046 University Avenue -- San Diego California). This fundraiser is being sponsored in partnership with San Diego’s Stonewall Citizens Patrol.

We invite everyone to come out and join us for this fun entertaining night of networking, raffle prizes, jello shots and much more! Protect and Defend is a nonprofit gay and lesbian support group which consists of law enforcement, firefighters, public safety and military personnel. The Pecs event will feature over 50 prizes being raffled off throughout the event, social games and many giveaways including cops and fireman memorabilia. Traffic will be Enforced, as patrons are greeted and receive a sticker that has their name and eligibility status, a popular social game that has followed Protect and Defend for years. Gay Cops and Firefighters will also be on hand at the Protect and Defend "Police Station" promoting the organization, answering questions and working to recruit potential members and volunteers.

Cops, Firefighters, EMS workers, doctors and all military personnel who are gay or lesbian in the San Diego and Orange County California areas are asked to join the Protect and Defend staff as they reach out to the community in San Diego. Protect and Defend hosts the International Police, Fire and Military Private party each summer in Palm Springs called "Party In The Desert". This private venue donates back to charities in the Coachella Valley Desert and attracts hundreds of gay cops, firefighters, ems and military personnel.

Protect and Defend Members from throughout California will be traveling to the event to help out and network with the gay and lesbian community in San Diego in an effort to start a partnership with our "brothers and sisters" in the public safety and the military professions. The group hosts events in cities throughout California and donates to nonprofit gay and lesbian charities. Protect and Defend has a legal team that provides support to its members, has special scholarships and hosts social events as well as peer support for its membership. We welcome you to come out and join us at Pecs Bar in San Diego and support your families in the military and public safety profession!
