Celebrating First Responders and Paying It Forward to Those in Need
When Sgt. Patrick O'Rourke of the West Bloomfield PD gave his life to save another, PayItForward55 was birthed in his honor. Sgt. O'Rourke was a devoted husband, dad, church member, musician, and all around terrific member of the Fenton and Hartland community. We use "55" in honor of his badge number and because 55 In police 10 means "I'm okay!" We now dedicate our energy to passionately advocate for the recognition of all first responders who, like Pat, run into dangerous situations without hesitation to keep the members of our communities safe. We raise funds while recognizing and celebrating these heroes. Paying it forward, the proceeds are given to area causes to help those in need! Join us to celebrate and PayItForward55!
