Firefighters William Johnson, Chris Minichiello, and all members of FDNY’s Engine Company 303 and Ladder 126 are holding a benefit for Patrick at Mulcahy’s, 3232 Railroad Avenue in Wantagh, on Saturday, September 22. The event will be held from 3 to 7 p.m., featuring a live band and an auction.

The firefighters are accepting donations to help support Patrick and his family.
