E Street Band rocker and former “The Sopranos” star Steven Van Zandt and Kevin Schroeder — president of the Retired Detectives of the Police Department of the City of New York — couldn’t hold their annual Little Steven’s Policeman’s Ball in person this year, but they still raised $200,000 for charity.
Support poured in from private donors including Beats mogul Jimmy Iovine, MSG honcho owner James Dolan, and more, to help the NYPD’s With Arms Wide Open and the Detectives’ Endowment Association’s Widows’ and Children’s Fund.
Van Zandt pointed out: “It’s been a crazy year,” but they couldn’t ignore the charities’ needs. “We reached out to our closest friends and were able to contribute close to the same amount we’ve raised each of the last five years,” he told Page Six in a statement.
“Little Steven” and Schroeder — who also runs celeb security firm Black Tie Protection Services — have for the last five years brought together rockers, athletes, celebs, and law enforcement brass for the event to raise money for the charities, and we hear they plan to be back again in full swing in 2021.
Dolan was honored at the event last year, which raised $300,000.
