Atlas Oil is partnering with Marathon to hold a fundraiser for the family of slain West Bloomfield police officer Patrick O’Rourke.
The Wixom Marathon station located at 29330 Wixom Road near Interstate 96 will donate 5 cents per gallon of gas purchased to the family.
The event starts from 5 a.m. Thursday and will run until 5 a.m. Saturday.
Proceeds from the sale of hot dogs, fountain drinks and coffee will also be donated during this two- day event.
Officer O’Rourke, killed in the line of duty on September 9th, leaves behind a wife and four children.
This fundraiser hopes to provide some help for the family as they deal with the tragedy.
The goal is to raise $10,000.
