NEWS BRIEFS
Firefighters Association
Benefit to aid firefighter

Glenview Professional Firefighters Association Local No. 4186 is holding a benefit for Glenview Fire Lt. Dave Garman, who has been diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. The rare and fatal neuro-degenerative brain disease strikes one person in a million, or approximately 200 Americans every year.

There is no cure.

A 28-year veteran of the department, Garman is married with three college-age sons. Because the disease is not related to his work, he will not be afforded the benefit of a duty disability.

The association has planned an evening of appetizers, cocktails, raffles and a silent auction "celebrating Dave as a husband, father, friend, firefighter and one of the nicest guys we know." The event is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday at The Glen Club, 2901 West Lake, Glenview. Donations will be accepted at the door.

Checks should be made payable to: The Dave Garman Benefit Fund, in care of Glenview State Bank, 800 Waukegan Road, Glenview IL 60025.

For directions to the event, visit the Web site at www.theglenclub.com.
