Local businesses help Libke family
Mikes Drive-Ins big check to help the family of fallen officer Robert Libke is among many local businesses that have been stepping up to help amid the tragedy.
Todd Freeman, owner of the drive-in, said his three locations together raised almost $6,400 in one night after Officer Robert Libkes memorial service, and then employees and the business chipped in extra to make it an even $8,000.
Oregon City was so involved, and the response from the community at large was just incredible, Freeman said.
You Can Leave Your Hat On owner Sandra Gillman organized another Thursday fundraiser as Minuteman Press in Oregon City donated fliers for participating businesses contributing 20 percent of their profits for the day.
Another benefit for the Libke family (with donated Feckin Beer) is Sunday, Nov. 24, from 2 to 8 p.m. at Falls View Tavern, 100 S. McLoughlin Blvd., Oregon City.
Music cover is $10 at the door, which will go to the family along with raffle proceeds and a percentage of profits.
