    The Delaware FOP is hosting a fundraising event for his daughter, Aubrey Spicer, this Saturday at the Bottle and Cork in Dewey Beach from 7 p.m. until closing. 

    “I think in Delaware we’ve seen such a great response because you just don’t expect this to happen in Delaware, FOP President Vincent Disabatino said. “We’ve lost officers in the past five years to accidents, but this is a deliberate murderous act that was committed on a police officer and I think that’s what’s shocked the state and has made the response so overwhelming for this poor 3 year old girl who is left without a father now.”

    The Bottle and Cork is located at:

    1807 Highway One
