After the Twin Towers collapsed, a group of retired police officers, known as Team Romeo, spent months working around the clock to aid in the recovery efforts. This year, 10 years after the 9/11 attacks, hundreds of officers from all over New York and New Jersey will gather at a fundraiser to honor the men of Team Romeo and to pay tribute to the 37 Port Authority officers and hundreds of other first responders who lost their lives as a result of that attack.
The event will take place on Sept. 11, 2011, at Hogs & Heifers Saloon (859 Washington St., NYC) from 2:30 p.m. on. Tickets are just $20 per person and tax-deductible. All proceeds will go to The Police Connection’s Redmond “Jimmy” O’Hanlon Fund, which supports officers who have been placed on no-pay status as a result of job-related incidents. Included in the ticket price are entrance and a BBQ dinner. Guests will enjoy live music, and prizes will be raffled off.
Those who would like to help but are unable to attend the Sept. 11, 2011, event can still give to the fund by sending tax-deductible donations and sponsorships to The Police Connection at P.O. Box 61, Little Falls, N.J., 07424. For more information, visit www.policeconnection.org.
