The benefit fundraiser held at the PLEA office on September 24, 2015 to support officer Eric Gardner was a great success and raised over $11,000 that will be given to the Gardner family to assist in meeting their financial needs in the coming months as Eric begins what is likely to be a lengthy and arduous journey of recovery.
PLEA would like to thank the fellow officers and members of the community that came out to show their support for the Gardner family. Many thanks also to all of our media partners who graciously donated time to assist in promoting and covering the event.
PLEA would also like to extend congratulations to our raffle prize winners:
The donated pair of box seat Cardinals tickets were won by retired PPD detective Roger Brumbaugh. The gift basket was won by retired PPD officer Jake Jacobsen and the two stuffed bear prizes were won by Sharon Campbell and Mike Walters.
