SHOUT OUT: The Police Pipes and Drums of Bergen County’s annual golf outing is set for Monday at the Edgewood Country Club in River Vale.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Kilted Cops Memorial Scholarship Fund: Each year, the group distributes at least seven $1,000 scholarships to high school children of law enforcement or band members headed to college.
“We get many applications for the scholarship each year and we are extremely happy to be giving back to the students in our communities,” said band Vice-President Ken Porrino, a Fort Lee police detective lieutenant.
Dinner at the Florentine Gardens will follow the outing — with an open bar, prizes and a performance by the band.

The outing was launched five years ago in memory of four departed band members: Mikey O’Laughlin (Cresskill PD) , James Conway (Englewood Cliffs PD), Gerard Lee (US Probation) and Stevie Dunne (NYC Courts).
It is run by charter member John Kelly, who Porrino said “works tirelessly to get this to be one of the best run outings of the year.”
