REACT Fundraiser at Hope and Anchor English Pub - – Rockford’s News Leader

REACT Fundraiser at Hope and Anchor English Pub


After Rockford's REACT helicopter crashed last month killing all three of its crew members, a memorial fund was set up in their honor by the Rockford Memorial Development Foundation.

Money donated goes to the families of the flight nurses Jim Dillow, and Karen Hollis, and pilot Andy Olesen.

Now, Hope and Anchor English Pub in Loves Park is doing its share to support the cause through a fundraiser.

The pub will donate 10% of its sales tonight to the fund. They also have a celebrity bartender, Aaron Kerr, who is going to donate all of the tips he received to the fund as well.

REACT T-shirts are also available for sale for $20.

They hope to raise at least a couple thousand dollars. All of the money raised through their sales will also go to the REACT memorial fund.
