Benefit concert for Sgt. Watson to be held tomorrow

A benefit concert for Jamestown Police Detective Sergeant Frank Watson will be held tomorrow, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. at The Dockside at Waits Wharf in Newport. The event will feature three bands: Garda, Those Guys and Ten-8.

Watson’s daughter, Payton, died Oct. 19, 2008, after a twoyear battle with cancer. Now, Watson himself has been diagnosed with cancer.

A raffle has also been organized to benefit the Watson family. The grand prize is a 42-inch Panasonic plasma television with home delivery from Flint Audio Video. Winners will be drawn the night of the concert; attendance at the concert is not required to win.

Tickets are $20 and may be purchased in advance at the Jamestown Police Department or at the door on Nov. 6. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Sgt. Watson Medical Fund.

Call Officer Derek Carlino at 423-1212 for information about the event or to make a donation.
