Wounded Warrior Concert 2016 

Story & photos by  Ex Captain Steven Grogan

On September 24, 2016, the Lynbrook Fire Department sponsored its Concert for the Troops at Truck Company's firehouse.  This is the department's sixth year of holding this event which has raised, prior to this year, about $100,000 for Nassau County Firefighters Operation Wounded Warrior.   Two special guests at the concert was former US Marine and honorary Lynbrook firefighter Marcus Dandrea, and US Army Sergeant Robert Scott.   Dandrea lives in Virginia but receives treatment at Bethesda.  SGT. Scott, of Lakeview, who is now also residing in Virginia, is receiving treatment at Fort Belvior. 

One of the major sponsors of this event is JetBlue which donated four sets of JetBlue tickets to anywhere they fly.  That donation would not have been possible without the help of Donna Lemay, a VP at JetBlue, who lives in Lynbrook.  Another major sponsor is Best Buy Supermarkets because of the help of Christopher Myers.  The wounded warrior committee would like to recognize our Chairman Kevin Bien and our letter writer and donation hunter Lynne Donnelly of the Ladies Auxiliary.  The committee would also like to thank the members of the department for all their help, especially the Ladies Auxiliary who manned the entrance tables and the Junior firefighters who sold t-shirts.  Thanks also goes to the many people and businesses who donated prizes and also the people and residents who came and supported the event.
