Fox Chase Town Watch to hold benefit for Duffy on May 15

The Fox Chase Town Watch has or­gan­ized a be­ne­fit din­ner to fund ac­cess­ib­il­ity-re­lated renov­a­tions to the home of the or­gan­iz­a­tion’s vice pres­id­ent, John Duffy.

Friends and com­munity mem­bers are in­vited to at­tend the May 15 event at Cot­tage Green, 9100 Ashton Road. Ad­mis­sion is $50 and in­cludes a buf­fet, open bar and DJ en­ter­tain­ment. 

Tick­ets may also be ob­tained by call­ing the Town Watch at 215-964-6666.

Duffy is a found­ing mem­ber of the Town Watch and is a long-serving mem­ber of its ex­ec­ut­ive board. He also or­gan­ized the an­nu­al Na­tion­al Night Out at Fox Chase Ele­ment­ary School.

In Janu­ary, he suffered a dev­ast­at­ing stroke. Now, he is work­ing hard to re­gain use of his arms and legs and faces many out-of-pock­et costs re­lated to his treat­ment, as well as renov­a­tions to his home to ac­com­mod­ate his phys­ic­al needs. 

Duffy is a well-known com­munity fig­ure who also worked sev­er­al years in the dis­trict of­fice of former state Rep. John Perzel.

The be­ne­fit will be held from 6 to 10 p.m.
