The Ethical Society of Police is hosting a cigar social fundraiser to benefit former St. Louis Police Officer Milton Green, who was shot by another officer while assisting an arrest on June 21, 2017. Green sustained serious injuries that ended his police career.
The fundraiser will be held 1-6 p.m. Sunday, September 23 at Montrey’s Cigar Lounge, 401 South Florissant Rd. in Ferguson. All proceeds will benefit Green and his children.
Prior to his career-ending injury, Green was his family’s primary breadwinner. He is now forced to apply for disability, struggling to support his family, and is having a hard time meeting his children’s needs. Donations and proceeds from the fundraiser are needed to help Green support his family and fulfill the promises he made to his children to properly educate them and allow them to continue to participate in school activities and sports.
The fundraiser will feature cigar specials, 50/50 raffle, auction and live painting by artist Micah Shelton. Food, beverages and cigars will be available for purchase, and Montrey’s will donate up to 15 percent of those sales. All other proceeds will benefit Green and his family.
The Ethical Society of Police (E.S.O.P.) is an association of police officers, park rangers, and civilians that advocates for racial and gender equity in the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department (SLMPD) and St. Louis County Police Department.
Green’s family has received previous financial support from ESOP and its individual members, the St. Louis Police Officers Association, the St. Louis Police Foundation, Shield of Hope (the Fraternal Order of Police’s charitable arm), Backstoppers and Captain Michael Deeba.
