Dakota News Now is reporting that the event will take place on Wednesday, (October 30) at the Sioux Falls Convention Center.

The dinner was founded by South Dakota Marshall Gene Abdallah in 1982 as a way for local businesses and community leaders to show appreciation and honor law enforcement officers. Since its creation, the event has raised millions of dollars for children's charities throughout the Sioux Empire in the name of law enforcement.

Limited seats still remain, which is good news for those hoping to see Mr. Shatner speak at this year's event.

Doors will open at 5:15 PM, with the event getting underway around 6:45 that night.

If you would like to get seats, or possibly sponsor a table of ten or more people you should call (605) 338-4304.

35 Movies That Take Place in South Dakota

When it comes to South Dakota and Hollywood, we've seen our fair share of films that have used our state as the backdrop for a number of productions over the years. They may not have always filmed here, but movie folk love to set stories here.

We're all familiar with the blockbusters like 1990's Dances With Wolves, 1959's North By Northwest, and more recently, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets. But our state's life on the big screen goes back nearly 100 years.

According to IMDb, it all started with Courtin' Wildcats, a 1929 film which, like so many of the 29 films on this list, is a Western set in the time before South Dakota became a state in 1889.
