A golf outing Friday will raise money for a scholarship fund established in memory of a police officer from Livingston County who lost his life in the line of duty.
The Patrick O’Rourke Memorial Scholarship Fund will hold its 5th annual golf outing tomorrow at The Golf Club at Mt. Brighton. For $75 per person or $300 for a team of four, golfers will get eighteen holes with cart, a gift bag, along with a continental breakfast, light lunch at the turn and a steak dinner at the end. Sergeant O’Rourke was a West Bloomfield police officer living in Tyrone Township. On September 9th of 2012, after his shift was over, O’Rourke responded to a call about someone potentially seeking to harm themselves. He was shot and killed by the very person he was trying to help. His family established the scholarship fund in his memory. His family says they want to help young people pursuing careers in law enforcement and criminal justice, while honoring Patrick’s memory.
