Rockland, NY Paramedic 10-13. We need your help!
In late May one of our paramedics here at Rockland Paramedic Services (Rockland County, NY), Ray Coffey, was seriously injured while working his per-diem job upstate. Ray is a Gulf War vet and father of three. He was in the back of the bus when it was t-boned going through an intersection. The box was ripped off the frame and Ray was thrown around inside as it rolled. He suffered fractures to every vertebrae in his thoracic spine, fractured his sternum, multiple ribs, pelvis, pulmonary and cardiac contusions. His rehabilitation is going to be long and his long term prognosis is unknown.
His fellow paramedics have organized a fundraiser/raffle to help him and his family in their time of need. We are raffling 4 great prizes- a 37in flat screen HDTV, a 7 mega pixel Sony camera, 4GB IPOD Nano, and 4 Yankee tickets for a September night game. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. The drawing will be held at the RPS 10-13 Fundraiser party. Thursday night August 23 from 5-9pm at the Black Bear Saloon in Nyack, NY. Free food, discounted drinks, music via DJ, and a 50/50 raffle. $10 cover. WINNERS NEED NOT BE PRESENT. Tickets/Prizes will be mailed to you. All proceeds go to our brother in need.
