The Wilton Police Benevolent Association is inviting the public to a special presentation in honor of Sgt. Thomas “TJ” Tunney, the longtime Wilton police officer who passed away from cancer in early January 2016. The presentation is taking place Monday, June 27 at 11 a.m..
In honor of his memory, the PBA will be presenting a donation to the Connecticut Hospice from the TJ Tunney Memorial Fund.
Tunney passed away just before a fundraiser was held intending to raise money to help cover Tunney’s medical costs. “Whatever was left over from the medical expenses, it was his wish and his sister’s wish to donate it to the Connecticut Hospice,” says Capt. John Lynch of the Wilton Police Department. The specific amount being donated will be announced at Monday’s event.
The event is being held at the Annex Building at Town Hall.
