Benefit For Officer Mac Brackenrich On Sunday, Dec 3

ALDERSON (WOAY)- The National Alliance for Law Enforcement Support, through the Alderson Police Department, Lewisburg and Fairlea Fire Departments, and many other sponsors and organized by Angela Robinson is holding a “One Team One Fight!” benefit for Mac Brackenrich at the Community Center in Alderson from 12-5 p.m. on Sunday, December 3.

Brackenrich is a police officer and fire fighter who was critically injured on October 28th in an off-duty incident. Brackenrich and his family are facing a very long road ahead and the goal of this benefit is to help make that road as smooth as possible.

The benefit includes a spaghetti dinner from 12-2 with salad, garlic bread, drink, and desert for $10; a silent auction from 1-3; and a live auction starting at 4 p.m. Food will continue to be available as long as supplies last. The Alderson Women’s Club and many others will be providing homemade desserts.

Everyone is invited to come and share the spirit of the season while supporting a great cause. Door prizes will be given away and t-shirts and bracelets will be available for sale. Tickets for a 50/50 drawing will sold. The live auction is sure to be exciting under the gavel of Billy Morgan.

Tremendous support has already been received from businesses and other generous donors throughout the area in the form of items for the auctions. Offerings will include guided hunts, guided fishing trips, hotel stays, restaurant dinners, new tools, antiques, primitives, gift certificates and much, much more.

There is a lot going on at the benefit so you may want to spend the afternoon eating, visiting with friends, watching your silent auction items, and participating in the live auction.

Robinson said, “We cordially ask you to come out and show your support for a more than worthy cause! In this family no one fights alone!”
