A benefit concert will be held this Sunday, March 3, for a Wichita police officer diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. 

Detective Matt Young recently found out he had the aggressive cancer. Detective Young is a 20 year member of the department and serves on the domestic violence and sex crimes unit. 

From 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday, a benefit concert will be held at Abode Venue for detective Young and his family.

Crossfire, a band made up of law enforcement, will perform. A donation of $10 is suggested. 

Wichita Wagonmasters will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs at the event. A live silent auction will also be held. 

Donations can be made at the Honore Adversis Foundation. Just put a notation that the donation is for the Young family. 

“I can tell you that I worked with Matt for several years out at patrol east. When I got the phone call two weeks ago, I was devastated from it and in shock,” said officer Steve Jerrell, with the Honore Adversis Foundation.

A benefit account has been established at Emprise Bank under “Matt Young’s Cancer Crusader”. Funds can be deposited at any Emprise Bank location. FEIN: 83-3510012
