*UPDATE* The fundraiser was a huge success with the Kenny Chesney guitar going for $1,900 and the Jason Aldean guitar going for $1,200 in the silent auction along with other great items like an Uncle Kracker signed guitar ($850) and more! Thank you to everyone who came out!!
All of us are still in disbelief after the tragic death of Wayne State Police Officer, Collin Rose. Today many will pay tribute to our fallen with a fundraiser in order to help Rose’s family. Officer Rose was passionate about his canines who rode along with him and helped solve many cases in Detroit. Rose’s fiance is also a staff member at Detroit Dog Rescue and will be taking time off during this difficult time.
So many great friends, family, artists and celebrities from all over the country have come together to help with items for the silent auction to raise funds for Officer Rose’s family. The big event will take place today from 4pm-10pm at Tony V’s Tavern in Detroit along with a cash bar, 50/50 raffle and silent auction.
WYCD PD Tim Roberts and I would like to specially thank Jason Aldean and Dawn Ferris from Broken Bow Records. Also Kenny Chesney and Bo Martinovich from Columbia Nashville for donating a Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney autographed guitar for the silent auction. The guitars are currently being shipped from Nashville to Detroit and the highest bidder today will get to come to 99.5 WYCD when the guitar arrives to pick it up!
Love always wins. All lives matter.
