     A benefit was held this past weekend at Rory Dolan’s in Yonkers for a young man who is battling bone cancer. Luke Gallagher is 11 years old and is the youngest of seven children.  He was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma and has already gone thru many treatments of chemotherapy as well as several surgeries to have his legs reconstructed.  He is currently in the process of learning to walk again but is still facing at least another 10 rounds of chemo in the future.  Luke older brother Eoghan serves as the Financial Secretary of the AOH Division #17 of New Rochelle, New York.

     The event, which was in the planning stages for several months, featured live music, dancing performances, gift basket raffles and an autographed sports memorabilia auction. A very special 70 foot long “gaming trailer” was also brought in so kids could spend time playing video games throughout the day.
