AOH Supports Gill Family Benefit




Yonkers AOH Supports The 
Gill Family Fundraiser
         

Hundreds Gather at Rory Dolan's for The Gill Family Benefit
            
         The entire Irish community came together this past weekend to support The Gill Family of Yonkers at a fundraiser held at Rory Dolan’s in Yonkers.  The Gill family, who had recently returned to America from Ireland, suffered a terrible tragedy on October 11, 2013, when an out of control car killed 15 year old Kalie Gill, and severely injured her younger sister Lindsey.  The Gill family have many relatives and friends in the Yonkers area.

         The outpouring of support came almost immediately after the accident, as hundreds of people who learned of the terrible accident went to work to see what they could do to help.  The benefit weekend was to raise funds for Lindsey’s medical and rehabilitation expenses. 

Massive crowds filled Rory Dolan's for the event

        The weekend’s events started with a benefit concert held at The St. Barnabas Parish/High School Chapel, as Kalie was a student at the school.  The second phase was a massive day long fundraising event held at Rory Dolan’s Restaurant, which included live music, a silent auction of sports jerseys and memorabilia, and raffles prizes that included a pair of Superbowl tickets as well as tickets to Ireland.  Actress Sarah Jessica Parker even donated a collection of shoes to be raffled off in support of the family.

       The Archbishop of New York, Timothy Cardinal Dolan stopped by to lend his support.  He said that he has been in constant contact with the Gill family, and was encouraged by a community united both in grief and support for Kalie and Lindsey.
