      PBA to hold 'Helping Hands' benefit

      The Brick Township Policemen's Benevolent Association (PBA) will hold its 20th annual "Helping Hands Benefit Basketball Game" at 7:30 p.m. March 27 at Brick Township High School, 346 Chambers Bridge Road, Brick. Tickets are $2 for children and $3 for adults.

      The game will feature members of the Brick Township Police Department playing the Brick Township Green Dragon football team.

      Proceeds from the game will go to 3- year-old Kelly Cogswell, who has been diagnosed with mitochondrial disease and a seizure disorder. The disease causes cells not to process energy efficiently through the brain. The disease is so severe that Kelly must be fed through a feeding tube and needs a nurse most of the day to help care for her.

      Individuals and organizations are asked to contribute in any way possible. Donations can be sent to the Brick Township Police Department, 401 Chambers Bridge Road, Brick NJ 08723, c/o Officer Richard Nelson Jr. Checks can be made payable to the "Kelly Cogswell Fund." For further information, contact 732-262-4708.
