A benefit event was held in Darien on Sunday at the Piedmont Club to show support for a detective diagnosed with cancer for the second time.
News 12 Connecticut first shared Detective Greg Benedetto’s story in February. After his diagnosis, his department has shown that they have his back.
Upon arrival, guests were greeted with letter-balloons that spelled out “Nobody Fights Alone.” Organizers said it was the main theme of the day. They sold dozens of raffle baskets and silent auction items. All proceeds go directly to the family.
“People have been checking in on us...financially supporting us as well. It really is a lot of stress relief for us,” said wife Holly Benedetto.
“He’s known community-wide, he’s just one of our all-stars, really. Of course, we would never balk at an opportunity like this to show our support,” said Darien Police Chief Jeremiah Marron.
Holly Benedetto said her husband’s recovery is going well right now.
