Bruce Springsteen guitarist Steven Van Zandt threw his fourth annual Little Steven’s Policeman’s Ball at the Mandarin Oriental hotel this past week, with performances by the Max Weinberg Orchestra and Gary U.S. Bonds.

The gala was coordinated with retired NYPD Detective Kevin Schroeder — who just returned from overseeing security at the wedding of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonasthrough his Black Tie Protection Services, we hear.

The event was also thrown with the Midtown North Detective Squad to benefit the NYPD’s With Arms Wide Open organization and the Detectives’ Endowment Association’s (DEA) Widows’ and Children’s Fund.

Hard Rock International CEO Jim Allen was honored in front of guests including Van Zandt’s “Sopranos” co-stars Vincent Pastore and Tony Sirico, as well as NYPD brass Terence Monahan and Dermot Shea, the DEA’s Michael Palladino and Brian Hunt, and execs from the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.

The event raised $250,000.
