RAHWAY – Rahway PBA #31, together with the Paterson PBA, is planning a fundraiser to help injured police Officer John Donofrio.
Donofrio was driving his motorcycle in Woodbridge on June 8 when he was injured in a motor vehicle accident. He has undergone several surgeries already and will likely need more. Donofrio also suffered a brain injury, but the severity is still unknown.
Donofrio served in the Paterson Police Department for a number of years before being hired by the Rahway Police Department after he was laid off. He also worked for the Department of Corrections at Northern State Prison.
The fundraiser is planned for Sunday, Aug. 19, at 1 p.m. at the Chris Michael Steakhouse & Lounge, 40 Oakwood Ave., Woodbridge. Tickets are $50 and include food, one free drink and entertainment. All proceeds will go to John Donofrio.
