Event Description

March 27, 2013 Updated Mar 27, 2013 at 11:05 AM CDT

Family and friends are sponsoring a benefit for Phillip "Punk" O’Donoghue of Burtonview, IL. Punk worked at Eaton Corporation for 35 years along with O’Donoghue Radiator Shop in Lincoln, IL. Punk has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS), as well as, Stage 2 lung cancer. Punk underwent surgery at Mayo Clinic in March to remove a tumor from his lung and chemo will begin soon. Future trips to Mayo are necessary. Punk and his wife, Lynn have 3 kids including 6 grandchildren. This family genuinely needs your support.

The benefit will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 1:00pm - ?? at the American Legion in Lincoln, Illinois. Highlights of the event include a pulled pork meal, silent auction from 1:00 – 5:00pm, 50/50 raffle, live auction beginning at 6:00pm, and live entertainment throughout the event. If Punk were to be described in one work, it would be FUN! Let's take this day to celebrate all the fun and laughter he has brought to us over the years!

Monetary donations will be gratefully accepted at the door and an account has been established at CEFCU where donations may be made payable to the “Phillip O’Donoghue Benefit.” Material donations (baskets, crafts, services, big ticket items, etc.) for the auction are welcome and needed! If you are interested in donating an item, or volunteering in any way, please contact Tricia Benninger (217-871-8274), Corinne O’Donoghue (217-871-7053), or Mary O’Donoghue (217-732-7150). We hope to see you there!
