Vargo Golf Courses are making a donation today to help the family the family of fallen Bloomfield police officer Patrick O'Rourke.

Rob Vargo is sponsoring the fundraiser, which is happening at any of the Vargo courses. Fifty percent of today's proceeds will go to benefit the O'Rourke family.

The golf courses included are Rackham Golf Course, Rouge Park golf course, Chandler Park golf course, Palmer Park golf course, the Myth golf course, Bruce Hills golf course, and Hampton golf club.

Another way the courses will raise money is through the rental of the number 55 carts -- the same as O'Rourke's badge number. All locations will have a number 55 cart available today for a $1,000 donation. All of the golf cart donations will go to Amy O'Rourke and her children.
