The Schenectady Police Benevolent Association donated $5,000 to the Maddie’s Mark Foundation, Schenectady police announced today.
The $5,000 donation was gathered from the union’s annual comedy night fundraiser, which took place on March 4. A PBA member suggested the funding be donated to Maddie’s Mark this year, police said.
Members of the police union’s executive board presented the foundation with a check Thursday evening at the PBA Union Hall located at 124 Clinton St.
Maddie’s Mark is a non-profit that works to help people enjoy their “best days ever.” The foundation was created in honor of Madeline Musto, 5, who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumor.
