AOH Supports Yonkers Member in Need




Myles Scully Division #1 Supports Fundraising Benefit for Yonkers Hibernian

 
Jimmy Casey Benefit was held at Danny Mac's in Yonkers

     The members of the AOH were out in force on April 2nd to help support a fundraising benefit for a fellow Hibernian in Yonkers.  Jimmy “Big Poppa” Casey is a proud member of Division #1 in Yonkers and suffered a terrible injury back in January during the Blizzard of 2016.  He is a popular figure in the local Yonkers Community, where he has organized and run the Annual Toys for Tots program over the last 14years.

     Jimmy had slipped on ice in front of his home the night of the blizzard and was knocked unconscious by the fall.  Jimmy lay exposed to the elements where over 2 feet of snow fell in subzero temperatures.  He was not discovered until the next morning where he was found clinging to life.  He was stabilized by doctors, but he suffered from extreme frostbite on both of his hands which subsequently required the amputation many of Jimmy’s fingers.  The benefit was organized to assist with Jimmy’s medical and rehabilitation expenses.

     “The outpouring of support from the AOH was tremendous,” said Division President Kevin Ellis, “Once we put the word out, the response was almost immediate.”  Checks began arriving shortly there after from Divisions and individual Hibernians across New York State.  Support even came away from as far as Chicago, Illinois & Roanoke, Virginia. “We were blown away when we received a check from Division #32 in Chicago,” said Ellis. “We even had individual members from Long Island drive up to show support for Jimmy.”

     A total of over $2,000 was received at the time of the benefit, and additional donations are expected in the near future.  When combined with the contributions of Division #1 and its members, the total was brought to over $4,000.

     Jimmy Casey continues to remain in the hospital during his recovery, and it is still unclear at this point when he will be able to return to a normal life once he is released.  There were many at the benefit who took notice of the large AOH presence at the benefit.  “The AOH is not just a fraternal organization, it is a true brotherhood,” said Ellis, “That quality shined through for everyone to see here today, Jimmy has a tough road ahead, but he will know that he has his Hibernian brothers standing with him.”
