On April 8th, 2017 SportsRadio 610 put on a live broadcast and supported the Houston Police Department and The Thin Blue Line Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club at the Concert Pub. The event was a benefit for Houston Police Officer Ronny Cortez and Jose Munoz, who were shot in the line of duty while responding to a burglary call on Feb. 28, 2017. Officer Cortez is currently paralyzed from the waist down and Officer Munoz is in a cast. The benefit will relieve some of the financial burden on the officers’ families, as well as assist with their long-term recoveries.
The fundraising event, which has grown to more than 1,000 attendees, many of whom want to attend to thank the officers for their service, will feature live music, BBQ plates for $10, live and silent auctions, and more.
Additionally, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo and city council members will be in attendance.
