Concert to Benefit Fallen Delco Firefighters
Delaware County firefighters have had their share of tragedy this year. In August, two young Parkside volunteers, Dan Brees, 20, Chase Frost , 21, were seriously injured in a townhouse fire at the Village of Green Tree. Brees suffered second and third degree burns and was released from the hospital; Frost remains in critical condition at Crozer Chester Medical Center.
Then, on September 26, 19-year-old Ridley Township resident Michael Reagan of the Sharon Hill Fire Company died as the result of injuries he sustained when part of a building collapsed and pinned him underneath. He was the first firefighter in the 101-year-old unit to die in the line of duty. A fireman’s funeral with full company honors is planned.
And this is where you come in.
This Sunday, the local Celtic band Blackthorn will headline a benefit for these fallen firefighters and their families from 2 to 8 PM at the Springfield Country Club, 400 West Sproul Road, Springfield. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at the door or by calling 610-723-1798.
