Another event was held on April 3rd to support John O'Malley, who was severely injured when his UBER driver went around a train barrier and was killed.
John, somehow survived, but the road to recovery will be a long one.
Hats off to the Irish who stepped up big time and raised the bar that was already high, as folks came out from near and far to support the benefit for John.
If you would like to add to that support, you can send a check, or drop off a sealed envelope with cash made out to:
J O Strong,
7292 W Devon Ave., Chicago IL 60631
