Former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, visited Johnson Janklow Abdallah Law Firm on November 7, 2018, to support the annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Dinner and Children’s Charity Fundraiser.  Governor Bush was joined at the law firm by Governor Dennis Daugaard, Governor-elect Kristi Noem, Senator John Thune, Attorney General Marty Jackley and Attorney General-elect Jason Ranvsborg.   The charity event, in its 37th year, has raised millions of dollars for children’s charities.  This year’s beneficiaries include Make-A-Wish, Children’s Miracle Network, Lifescape, South Dakota Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald House and Cops For Kids.   “It was great to have Governor Bush join us this year for our annual event,” said Scott Abdallah, co-chair of the event.  “We are so honored to help raised money for children in the name of law enforcement,” Abdallah added.  The reception for Governor Bush was followed by the main event at the Ramkota Exhibit Hall in Sioux Falls.  The main event brings together nearly 2,000 law enforcement officials and business leaders to support children’s charity in the name of law enforcement.
