Tom Birkhofer Benefit
Tuesday, May 17, 2010
Mulligan’s Valley Pub 310 W 1st Ave., Coal Valley
The Tom Birkhofer Benefit on Tuesday, May 17, will help this Bettendorf father of three and son-in-law of former St Ambrose and North Scott coach, Larry Lake, who suffered a spinal cord injury in August, 2010 when he fell from a tree while trimming. Tom spent one month at the University of Iowa hospitals and one month at Genesis West rehab. He is now home and continues with therapy. While he is making good progress, he will be unable to return to his profession as an electrician.
The benefit features great raffle prizes such as an I PAD, a 32” flat screen TV, a remote car starter, 2 Iowa Tickets to the Northwestern game, a $100 necklace from Diamonds on the Avenue, a GPS system, and 2 John Deere Classic tickets combined with a hotel stay at HomeRidge Inn and Suites and a $50 dinner at Bennigans. In addition, there will be several gift baskets for raffle and great tacos for only $5. Raffle tickets for major prizes are available in advance and you need not be present to win.
All proceeds will benefit the Birkhofer family who is struggling to return to “normal” life after this tragedy. If you can’t attend but wish to donate, please send your donation to: Tom Birkhofer Benefit fund, c/o First Midwest Bank, 1975 Kimberly Road, Bettendorf, Iowa 52722.
For information call: (563) 340-6755.
