TICKETS AVAILABLE FOR A BENEFIT TO HONOR PO SAUL CONTRERAS, JR.
Saul died while on furlough in September of 2006 from acute pancreaitis while on a cruise in the Bahamas. The proceeds of the benefit are going to the Chicago Police Gold Star Families Foundation.....the survivors of PO deaths whether on duty, off duty or as a result of suicide. For those of you who don't know, this foundation provides emergency relief to surviving family members by way of groceries, medical bills, etc. It is a non-profit organization in place to pick up the slack where the city leaves off. For those of you who do know the Gold Star Families, you know what they do and that they are a good cause.
Tickets are available for $30.00 apiece by contacting 003rd District or if SCC permits contact me here at EGRESS_10RCN@YAHOO.COM
BENEFIT DATE: 16 APR 07 (EVERYONE WILL WANT TO DRINK AFTER TAX DAY)
1800-2300 AT THE FOP HALL.
BEER, FOOD, POP, DJ, RAFFLE
I also need donations of food, pop, water, plates, trashbags etc. Anybody willing to help, it is greatly appreciated. Excess supplies will be donated to any other PO benefits so nothing will be wasted.
