Fraternal Order of Police lodge fundraiser to benefit officer

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 16 in Owensboro will be hosting a barbecue to raise funds for a fellow officer on Saturday. 

Organizers say Owensboro Police Officer Sean Schlachter was recently diagnosed with an illness that will require treatment.  FOP members will be cooking chicken and Boston butts at Precious Blood Church in Owensboro. Organizers say the event would be a good place to find food for your Derby Party.  

"We really pride yourself in law enforcement for being a family and to see everyone come together to help another member in a time of need is really heart warming," said Brandon Sims, FOP Lodge 16 Vice President.

They will serve food from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for per-sold tickets. After 12:30 pm, whatever has not been picked up will be available for purchase by anyone without a ticket.
