On Friday, February 4th 2011, the Livonia Jaycees held a fundraiser for fallen Livonia Police Officer Larry Nehasil, at the One Under Bar and Grill in Livonia. This Jaycees event featured Roop Raj, from Fox 2 Detroit, as the Master of Ceremonies, and over 400 donors and supporters all celebrating the life of Larry Nehasil. The Livonia Jaycees have raised over $16,000 for the family of the fallen police officer through the generosity of the community.
The three-hour event celebrated the life of Larry Nehasil and guests listened to Police Chief Robert Stevenson, Larry’s family members, and John Badeen the president of the Livonia Jaycees, discuss his life.
