On Friday, March 24, 2017, the Brick Township Policemen’s Benevolent Association will be holding its twenty-seventh annual “Helping Hands Benefit Basketball Game”.  The game will feature members of the Brick Township Police Department playing the Brick Township Green Dragon Football Team in a game of basketball.

As in the past, the P.B.A. is hosting the game to assist a local family facing financial hardship due to a child’s serious illness.  This year, the proceeds of the game will go to the family of Piper Coqueran to help them care for their daughter.

Piper was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on May 25, 2016, shortly before her 5th birthday. Piper has undergone several medical procedures since then.  She has many chemo treatments ahead of her over the next couple of years.

Piper is the youngest of 8 children in the Coqueran family.  As you can imagine, they have a substantial amount of debt that continues to increase with each passing day.  We would like to extend a helping hand to Piper and the Coqueran family.

Please show your support for the family of Piper Coqueran at the “Helping Hands Benefit Basketball Game”. It will be held at the Brick Township High School East Gym on Friday, March 24, 2017 at 7:30pm.  Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door.  The cost is $3.00 per adult and $2.00 per student.  Seating is limited, so arrive early.

Donations can also be sent to the PBA Local 230, P.O. Box 1067, Brick, NJ 08723, c/o Officer John Turrin.  Checks can be made payable to the “Helping Hands Fund”. 

For further information, please contact Officer John Turrin or Officer Robert Scelfo, at 732-262-1100 or Detective Greg Mullarkey at 732-262-1122.  As seen at our past games, the Brick Township community never fails to show their unwavering support.
