The Burren in Davis Square was host to a charity concert this past Thursday night by Cambridge Police Lieutenant Pauline Wells. The event featuring Pauline Wells and the popular Irish Band DEVRI Boston, raised money to benefit the New England Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, a national organization which supports the families of law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty. The Burren was rocking as Pauline and her friends played a variety of popular and Irish music to the sold out audience. In addition to the proceeds of the concert, Joseph Rogers, the step-father of MIT Officer Sean Collier who was killed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, presented a check for $2,500 to Rebecca McCallister of NECOPS.
Lieutenant Wells also sang this past Saturday evening at the Candlelight Vigil on the National Mall, in Washington D.C. on behalf of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. More than 25,000 law enforcement officers plus the families and friends of those who were killed in the line of duty attended.
