Officer Ley Benefit

Supporting Officer Ley and the Norwich Police Department

Rock the Day Away with

Officer Jonathan Ley


Saturday, March 30, 2013 will be a celebration of Officer Ley and the Norwich Police Department at Dodd Stadium in Norwich, Connecticut. With Officer Ley slowly recovering, he needs our support from the community to aide his future endeavors. It is a long road for Officer Ley and he takes every day as it comes. The monies raised will support Officer Ley’s long-term recovery, lasting years beyond his immediate compensation. As a dear friend of Officer Ley, I can certainly tell you his spirits are high but his body is still undergoing severe recuperation.  

This day is also about celebrating the men and women at the Norwich Police Department for their bravery and courage to stand before those who threaten our public safety. They take risks, everyday, beyond our reasonable thoughts. Although both Officer Ley and the Norwich Police Department are taken care of by federal and state funding, we have all lived through these past tumultuous years of budget cuts and deficits. Officer Ley has committed to donating a portion of the proceeds to assist in providing “combat tactical gear” for his fellow officers at the Norwich Police Department. This will greatly help the department as a whole.

On March 30, we hope you come to Dodd Stadium and enjoy a day filled with music, food, raffles and more! Here is a taste of what’s in store for the day- your ticket includes:

  On behalf of Officer Ley, there are individuals we would like to thank for making this day a true success!

 -       CJ Knudsen and Jack Kasten of the Connecticut Tigers at Dodd Stadium; these two individuals have donated countless hours in providing us with the best experience at Dodd Stadium. They have gone above and beyond the call of duty and our community must recognize their commitment to our locals. Please support their upcoming 2013 season- they know how to bring a community together and provide a great venue to enjoy America’s favorite pastime!

 -       Scott Capano, owner of Harp and Dragon in Norwich, Connecticut.  Scott has not only printed material to support the event, he has dedicated time and effort into spreading the word about Officer Ley’s day and it is important we recognize this local business owner who has given so much! AND to top this man’s generosity, he has donated burgers, dogs and all the accoutrements for the event! We are all positively blown away and cannot thank you enough for your continued support.
