On December 21, 2015 our nation lost two heroes to a suicide bomber in Afghanistan.Â They were US Air Force TSgt Joseph Lemm and US Air Force SSgt Louis Bonacasa.Â TSgt Lemm was not only a member of the Air National Guard but he also served with the NYPD.Â SSgt Bonacasa was born and raised in Suffolk County.Â Both of these men had families that can use our support.
The New York Whalers is a local ice hockey team comprised of a mix of Suffolk County PD, Suffolk County Corrections, NYPD, NCPD, New York State Police, and FDNY.Â The Whalers will be playing against the NYPD Alumni Ice Hockey team in a charity gameÂ on Sat Mar 19, 6:30pmÂ at The Rinx in Hauppauge NY to raise money for the families.
Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased in advance at Brothers Police Store atÂ 644 Horseblock Road in FarmingvilleÂ or at the door the day of the game.Â Advanced ticket purchase is recommended due to limited seating.
Any check donations can be made out to “Boldest Hockey” a registered non-profit organization that will handling the money for this event.Â If you have anyone or organization that would like to make a check donation I will make arrangements to pick it up.
