WOODLAND PARK, N.J. -- A fundraiser for Wayne Police Officer Bob Franco, seriously injured when he was in his car and a tree fell on the vehicle during Hurricane Sandy, will take place on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at the Woodland Park Fairway Market (1510 US 46 West) from 4 pm to 10 pm.
Fairway Market will donate 25 percent of the sales received from registered shoppers to the Policemen's Benevolent Association Local 135 to help with Officer Franco's medical bills.
Franco, the father of three young children, suffered a severe spinal injury and remains in the intensive care unit of St. Joseph's Hospital in Paterson after seven hours of emergency surgery.
"Officer Franco was out making sure the community was safe when this tragedy occurred," said Herb Ruetsch, CEO of Fairway Market. "He is a true hero and we are privileged to help him and his family in some small way."
