On Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013, The Friends of Bob Bromley Committee is holding a benefit fundraiser at the Ellicottville American Legion.

Bromley, a lifelong Ellicottville resident and highly respected contractor, has been battling serious health issues and is currently awaiting a lung transplant at the Cleveland Clinic. Due to his illness, Bromley has been unable to work for more than a year and he and his wife Elaine have been forced to sell off some personal property, including much of his collection of antique and classic tractors.

In an effort to help the Bromleys with their mounting medical expenses, the committee has organized this benefit event and is asking for the community’s help in making it a success. In addition to a ham and turkey raffle, there will be 50/50 raffles, a silent auction and a live auction of donated crafts, collectibles and gift items. Food and refreshments also will be available. Doors open at noon and the raffles begin at 1 p.m.

Ed Rick, owner of the Gin Mill and chair of the committee, says donations of gift baskets, gift cards or auction items are welcomed. Checks for monetary donations can be made out to Mr. Robert Bromley.

All gifts and donations may be dropped off or mailed to Mr. Robert Bromley, c/o Ellicottville American Legion, 6500 Maples Rd., Ellicottville, NY 14731 or c/o The Gin Mill, P.O. Box 1487, Ellicottville, NY 14731.

If you prefer, Rick will gladly pick up your donations. Call (716) 432-2413 to arrange a pickup.
