DRESDEN, Ohio â€“ Saturday at the American Legion Post 399 in Dresden locals put on a fundraiser for a Sheriffâ€™s deputy hurt in the line of duty.
In June, Deputy Rod Holdcroft with the Muskingum County Sheriffâ€™s Office, was injured in a crash while responding to a 911 call on State Route 146. Bob Davis with the Sons of the American Legion said they felt helping out Holdcroft was the right thing to do.
â€œWhat weâ€™re doing is a spaghetti dinner. Also a silent auction and we have a 50-50 drawing. And all the proceeds are going to him and his family in their time of need,â€ said Davis.
Dozens were at the American Legion for Saturdayâ€™s fundraiser and while Davis said they didnâ€™t have a monetary goal they hoped to hit, they felt confident that they would be able to raise enough money to help the Holdcraft family.
â€œSome of the guys knew him. He graduated from Tri-Valley. As did I, and most of the members of the sons. We graduated from here and we just thought it was a good thing to do to help out a local guy,â€ said Davis.
Davis thanked everyone who came out to Saturdayâ€™s fundraiser.
