Money raised for the Buffalo Police Department K-9 Unit at a fundraiser Nov. 16 at Club Marcella was presented to the unit on Friday at Buffalo Police Headquarters.
The event at the downtown Buffalo club raised $16,460. Club owner Joe Marcella joined police officials and relatives of Craig Lehner, a member of the Police Department's K-9 unit and dive team member who died in October during a training exercise.
The funds will be used to purchase another dog for the department, for training and to modify a police car into a K-9 car, said Lt. Salvatore Losi, commander of the unit.
