OKLAHOMA CITY, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Hudson's Pub and volunteers from the Edmond, Oklahoma City and Village Police Departments and Oklahoma Sheriff's Department all joined together to conduct a benefit action for Chad Peery.  Chad was the off duty Oklahoma City police officer that was brutally attacked on February 15th, 2011 at Dan O'Brien's.  Officer Peery suffered a broken neck and is now paralyzed.  

Due to the efforts of all the volunteers and companies that donated prizes over $40,000 was raised.  All this money will go to support Officer Peery's wife and their 4 children.  

A special thanks to Capital Distributing, Republic National Distributing, Premium Beers and Citadel Radio.  This is just a small part of the very large list of Oklahoman's that made this event the success it was.

"This event shows the compassion of Oklahoman's and what can be accomplished when everyone joins together," said Kelli Halsted, Marketing Manager for Henry Hudson's.  "This was truly a community event.  Many generous companies and individuals made this a success, including Manske Auction Company.  The support for Chad and his family was amazing.  We were thrilled to be able to host this event."
