FULTON, NY – There will be a fundraiser Oct. 13 for Ed Hoffman, a retired Fulton police officer who lost his battle with cancer last month.
On July 17, Ed was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. The aggressive cancer quickly spread into his liver and lymph nodes. In early August, Ed began receiving chemotherapy treatments to reduce the size of his tumors.
Ed had been unable to work since June 25, and his bills continued to mount.
The fundraiser, an all-you-can-eat chicken and pasta dinner, will be held at Thunder Island Oasis, 21 Wilcox Road, Fulton, on Oct. 13 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Tickets are $10 apiece (under 5 eat free).
Advance sale tickets available at: Fulton Police Department, Thunder Island and B&T Sport Shop.
Donations (checks) can be sent to: Tom Abelgore c/o Fulton Police Department, 141 S. First St., Fulton, NY 13069.
There will be door prizes, entertainment, raffles and a cash bar.
A memorial service for the former Fulton resident will be held at Holy Trinity Parish on October 14 at 9:30 a.m.
