Hard Rock Cafe hosts Team Collier Strong event

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - The Hard Rock Cafe in Boston hosted a Team Collier Strong event on Sunday to send-off friends and family going to Washington, D.C. for National Police Week.

Collier, an MIT police officer who was allegedly killed by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, will be honored in D.C. in a memorial ceremony for officers killed in the line of duty.

Collier, and other names, will be read aloud on the grounds of the Capitol.

The event featured a silent auction and live music. A limited edition Collier Strong pin was unveiled, with 15 percent of the price benefiting Team Collier Strong.

"It is truly amazing to receive such a wonderful send-off to Police Week and to have a specialty-made limited edition pin created to honor Sean," said Jenn Rogers, Collier's sister.

Ticket sales from the event benefited the team and helped to fund the Sean A. Collier Self Sponsor Scholarship, which helps one student attend the Lowell Police Academy.
