Casino night could help get Liam Frawley a van, more therapy

Liam Frawley has been home since Sept. 1. But countless hours of speech, occupational and physical therapies lie ahead of the Tappan Zee athletic director, who suffered a burst brain aneurism last January and still can’t walk or speak.
The 48-year-old father of a 14- and 16-year-old requires costly home aide services and his wife of 22 years, Janine, wants to get a wheelchair-accessible van to take him to his three-hour, twice-weekly therapy sessions at Helen Hayes Hospital and to also just get him out of their New City house more often.
She’d also like to hire a speech therapist to work with him at home.
Those things will be costly, which is one reason for Saturday’s “Guys Night Out” casino fundraiser.
The night, which is billed as a men’s event, will include blackjack, craps, roulette, a cigar bar and a showing of the first ever UFC fight at Madison Square Garden. It will run 7 p.m. until 1 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus on Bailey Street in Blauvelt.
This will be the third benefit for Frawley, who is paralyzed on his right side.
