Send a link to a friend

[April 11, 2013]  Family and friends are sponsoring a benefit later this month for Phillip "Punk" O'Donoghue of Burton View. Punk worked at Eaton Corp. for 35 years and at O'Donoghue Radiator Shop in Lincoln. He has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease and Stage 2 lung cancer. In March he underwent surgery at Mayo Clinic to remove a tumor from his lung, and chemo will begin soon. Future trips to Mayo are necessary.

Punk and his wife, Lynn, have three children and six grandchildren. This family genuinely needs your support.

The benefit will be at the American Legion in Lincoln on April 27, beginning at 1 p.m. Highlights of the event will include a pulled pork meal, silent auction from 1 to 5 p.m., 50-50 raffle, live auction beginning at 6 p.m. and live entertainment throughout the event.

If Punk were to be described in one word, it would be fun. The public is encouraged to take this day to celebrate all the fun and laughter he has brought 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."
