Benefit for Naperville Police Officer

*-* I'm keeping this up at the top of the blog until the benefit is over*-*-*

Officer Greg Rink is a 6 year veteran Police Officer with the Naperville Police Department. In June of this year, Greg suffered a severe injury which nearly left him paralyzed. As a result of this injury, Greg has undergone significant and extensive surgery to his spinal cord and neck area, which has caused him to be off of work for an extended period of time. Greg has exhausted all of his vacation and sick time, and unfortunately has not received a paycheck in over 2 months.

It is currently unknown when or if Greg will be able to return to his normal duties. Greg is just like the rest of us with financial responsibilities such as a car and a mortgage.

On October 28th 2006 the Naperville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #42, in cooperation with the Phoenix Club of Aurora, will be hosting a benefit to assist Greg with some of his financial responsibilities.

The event will be held at:
The Phoenix Club
515 Phoenix Court
Aurora, Illinois
Time : from 5:30 PM to 12:00 AM on Oct 28th 2006.
Cost is $20.00 which includes food, music and all the fun you can possibly have!
There will be a cash bar and possibly some games.

Questions can be directed to Ken Gettemy (email: GettemyK@Naperville.Il.US)
tel: (630)750-5666 or Joe Matchett (email: Matchett@Naperville.IL.US)

If you can, step up and help one of our own.
