Fundraiser for Police Officer Owen Ortiz

October 2, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Police Officer Owen Ortiz has stage 4 cancer. It began in his cheek last year, and it has now spread to his head, neck and throat. Officer Ortiz has a wife and a 4-year-old daughter. Officer Ortiz’ cancer required daily radiation treatments. After several weeks, his NYPD benefits for cancer treatment expired. Ortiz has incurred many out-of-pocket expenses.

His fellow officers of the 49th Precinct will host a fundraiser for him on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 from 7:00pm to 11:00pm at the Pine Bar & Grill in the Bronx.

A $20.00 admission fee will get food and music. There will be raffles — prizes include items from New York sports teams. The grand raffle prize is a private concert by Katy Perry.

Tickets are available at the door or by calling Police Officer Vic DiPierro at 718-918-2025, or Sergeant Ryan Hughes or Police Officer Eric Rivera at 718-319-8435.
