|Tickets available for RP officer’s fundraiser
Tickets are on sale for a fundraiser for Rohnert Park Dept. of Public Safety Officer Gerald Vincent Jr, who is facing his second battle with Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma.
The fundraiser is scheduled for May 10, from 5-10 p.m. at Sally Tomatoes. Tickets are $25, and proceeds will go to help Vincent and his family offset the rising costs for his treatment of stem cell and bone marrow transplants.
Vincent, who has been with RPDPS for more than 20 years, is in need of a bone marrow donor, but one has not been found as of yet. His cancer has been so aggressive his doctors are sending him to Stanford for stronger chemotherapy treatment and radiation. With only the chemo and radiation, his doctors are unsure how long his cancer will stay away.
Tickets are available at the door, online at http://geraldvincent.eventbrite.com, by calling 584-2668 or by e-mailing RKilmartin@rpcity.org. Sally Tomatoes is located at 1100 Valley House Dr. in Rohnert Park.
