ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY – A benefit was held Friday night for a local prison guard and police officer who has been struggling with health issues.

Friends and family of the Ebensburg guard met at Pellegrine’s Lounge for the benefit Friday. The husband and father of four did not want to release his name due to security concerns. He suffered a ruptured spleen in January and has had numerous connected health issues.

“This is a testimony to how great a person he is and how everyone loves him,” said Christy Snyder. “He’s somebody that people will go out of their way to help because he’s helped them through the years.”

The next event for him is March 2nd at the Heidelberg.
