Hawaiian shirts, ‘crooked’ drives pay tribute to fallen Greenland police chief
But at this charity event, skill wasn’t all that important, especially for the “crooked drive” contest.
Those who knew Maloney said he enjoyed golfing even though he had a lot of trouble with the game.
“I really think Mike did bring the sun here. He’s looking down and he’s seeing all these great crazy clothes, the Hawaiian shirts, and especially the bright clothing, and most of all, the tribute to him. He was certainly someone who did so much for this state, gave his life in the line of duty. Did so much for others, going out right before his retirement to do his job to help other people, putting his life on the line,” she said.
Other funds are also being sent to the families of wounded MBTA Transit Officer Richard “Dic” Donohue and fallen MIT Officer Sean Collier, who was shot and killed after allegedly being ambushed by the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings.
“This is something he would love to do. Having a good time and having fun, that’s what he was all about. He would have fun at work, he would have fun with his friends. This, I think, is how he would want to be remembered,” Greenland police Sgt. Dawn Sawyer, who also serves on the memorial fund’s board of directors, said of Maloney.
“I think this year we’re going to do fairly well. The more that we make, the more that we can give back to the community. That’s what’s important to us,” he said.
