Save the Date: Fundraiser for Newport Police Officer
A Newport Police officer recently diagnosed with a rare immune deficiency disease will be the beneficiary of an upcoming fundraiser in Newport.
Newport Police Sergeant Jeff Hood, a Highlands High School graduate, was recently diagnosed with an immune deficiency that has resulted in the loss of much of his hearing.
The fundraiser, which is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 21, at the Newport Fraternal Order of Police Lodge in Woodlawn, KY, will raise money for Hood and his wife to pay for hearing aids and to help pay medical bills.
The fundraiser will include a DJ, a cornhole tournament, and cheap drinks. The cost will be $5 at the door.
The Newport FOP Lodge is located at 1110 Waterworks Rd., Woodlawn, KY.
Any questions or donations should be directed to Brandon Vance, Kim Colston, or Derick Dieters at 859-292-3680.
