Fundraising event for Brother Bill Kennedy’s son
We are writing on behalf of Brother Bill Kennedy, a longtime member of the Rhode Island AFL-CIO Executive Board, a highly decorated Korean War veteran and distinguished labor leader who has represented organized labor on various boards and commissions over many years with honor and distinction.
At last month’s Rhode Island AFL-CIO Executive Board meeting, Bill told everyone about a tragic accident that occurred involving his son, Bill. Bill was unemployed at the time and without health insurance, and his bills are now astronomical. A fundraiser has been scheduled to help Bill with his medical expenses on Saturday, August 16, 2014 from 12:00PM to 5:00PM, at the Elks Lodge #2285, 42 Nooseneck Hill Road, West Greenwich, RI (off exit 6 – 95 South). We’ve attached a flyer with additional information and hope that everyone is able to support and attend this very important event. We thank you in advance for your consideration and look forward to seeing you on August 16th!
