a worthy cause
For anyone in the Long Island area, something fun and worthy to do next weekend:
On November 2, the Fraternal Order of Court Officers will be holding a benefit for the families of the three court officers killed while assisting at the World Trade Center. A lot has been written about the firemen and policemen who died, but not many people know that these court officers also gave their lives to help others.
The event will take place on Friday November 2, at the Irish American Center,297 Willis Avenue Mineola.
There is a $5.00 admission which gets you food, soda and beer. There will be raffles and auctions for some great swag, including a Mike Piazza autographed jersey, a Mark Messier autographed hockey stick and all kinds of good stuff. If you would like to just give a donation to the families of the officers, you can get more info at the FOCO website (patriotic midi warning). If you would like to get a raffle for one of the great prizes, contact me and I'll hook you up.
