Captain Patrick “Paddy” Brown fundraiser
November 16, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Celebrate Paddy Brown and help our U.S. vets adapt to the fire service by attending a benefit on Saturday, November 16, 2013, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm at Eleanor Rigby’s Bar & Restaurant in Mineola.
The fee to attend is $50.00 cash per person at the door. All proceeds will benefit Leadership under Fire/The Paddy Brown Program. Mirroring Paddy’s transition from combat in Vietnam with the Marine Corps to the FDNY, Leadership under Fire (run by another Marine Corps combat veteran and FDNY member) assists veterans who wish to transition to the fire service.
Food, beer, wine and live music from Harper’s Ferry (a splinter band of the Sporting Paddies) are all included in the admission price. There will also be a 50/50 and raffles.
For more information, please call Carolyn Brown at 516-984-7776 or Bill Schillinger at 917-902-6689.
This event will be run in cooperation with Hope for the Warriors.
