Friends and family of Tech. Sgt. Dashan Briggs gathered together Sunday for a family-friendly fundraiser in his memory.
The first annual “TSgt. Dashan J. Briggs Family Fun Day and BBQ Contest” was held at Stotzky Park in Riverhead. The event brought together all the things Sgt. Briggs loved most: family, friends and barbecuing.
The fundraiser celebrated his life, cut short at the age of 30 when a helicopter crashed in March while he was serving with the 106th Rescue Wing in Iraq.
He left behind his wife, Rebecca, and their children Jayden, 3, and Ava, 2. Proceeds raised by the event will benefit the young family.
