Benefit Sunday for family of fallen Sheriff's Deputy Sergio Aleman

HALES CORNERS -- A benefit is planned for Sunday, September 2nd to assist the family of fallen Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputy Sergio Aleman.

Clifford's Fine Food on W. Forest Home Ave. in Hales Corners is playing host to the benefit for Aleman beginning at noon Sunday. The benefit will raise money for Aleman's wife and five children.

Aleman was killed in a July 31st crash on Interstate-43 near downtown Milwaukee. His service vehicle rear-ended a flatbed tow truck -- and Aleman died of his injuries a while later.

The benefit will be a 12-hour affair featuring food, drinks, a silent auction and live music. It's organized by Milwaukee County Sheriff's Deputy Christopher Adams, and Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy Romo West.

"Our goal is $50,000 for the family. I know it's a big goal, but I said 'You know what? I'm gonna set the bar high, and make the community meet me there,'" Adams said.

"This tribute, and this fundraiser, is a great way for us to show the Aleman family that we love them," Romo West said.
