REGENT BROADCASTING Country WGNA (COUNTRY 107.7)/ALBANY, is to host "HOMETOWN HEROES" night at the SARATOGA RACEWAY. At the event, tomorrow, SEPTEMBER 8th, anyone in emergency services will be admitted 'free' to the grandstand, along with three children. Local police, fire-fighters, EMS and military will be able to take advantage of the special offer.
The event will also recognize the recent sacrifice made by NYS Troopers, JOSEPH LONGOBARDO and DONALD BAKER Jr. As the men were working to apprehend an escaped prisoner recently in Upstate NY, LONGOBARDO lost his life and BAKER is still in the hospital, continuing to fight for his life. All of the monies raised in the event will go to special funds set up for these officers.
