GLENDALE — A Glendale-based fundraising company has been named in a state-filed lawsuit that alleges the organization duped donors into giving hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of a nonexistent program for at-risk youth. The for-profit company, Rambret Inc., reportedly promised donors that their money was going to help run the Law Enforcement Apprenticeship Program, which never saw the light of day, according to the lawsuit filed Friday. Donations were instead used to pay for a 30-foot sailboat, fundraising expenses and the Law Enforcement Apprenticeship Program Foundation director’s personal expenditures, the lawsuit alleges.
