The Palm Beach Police Foundation raked in some serious cash at its sold-out yearly shindig Saturday night at Mar-a-Lago — a total $1 million, thanks to an auction stacked with unique packages.

The money, by the way, goes to pay for college scholarships for the children of Town of Palm Beach officers.

More than 300 guests were ushered into the club’s grand ballroom by the bagpipes of the Palm Beach Pipes and Drums Saturday.

There, they found fake NYPD hats and handcuffs on each chair, and posters of classic cop movies and TV series like Serpico and Charlie’s Angels.

For some reason, handcuffs were fashionable at the event. Dessert included chocolate handcuffs which, no doubt, were used much later by some who didn’t eat them at the gala.

Just like last year, Maggie May singer Stewart showed up with his ex-model wife Penny Lancaster. The couple is known to spend several weeks in winter in their $18 million-beachfront house just south of Mar-a-Lago.

Lancaster jumped on the stage to announce that the couple would throw in an auction item for four lucky stiffs: a visit to the singer’s Beverly Hills home, the flight on Stewart’s private jet to his Vegas show, and backstage passes.

Sold, to mall developer J.J. Cafaro for $55,000!

An anonymous donor (probably Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, but don’t tell anyone!) threw in tickets for two seats in a 50-yard line suite at Monday’s Alabama-Notre Dame football game.

It went to Notre Dame fan and Police Foundation President John Scarpa, for $20,000.
