NY: Auburn hunter injured in 2009 treestand accident
January 18, 2010
Jan. 31 fund-raiser set for Auburn man injured from tree stand accident
Family and friends are holding a fund-raising dinner for Auburn
corrections officer Sal LoMascolo, who was seriously hurt in a
hunting-related accident last fall.
The event will be from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 31 at the Ukrainian
National Club, 125 Washington St., Auburn. There will be a pasta dinner,
music by DJ Don Tavener and a live performance by Heather Lardeo as well as
an auction, raffles and door prizes.
LoMascolo, 35, suffered a spinal injury when he fell from his deer
hunting tree stand in Aurelius on Oct. 11. He was checking out the stand a
week before the bow season was to start when he was startled by some mice
that had built a nest in his stand, he said Monday.
LoMascolo was initially paralyzed from the waist down but has since
regained some movement and can walk with a cane, he said. He does physical
therapy three times a week.
LoMascolo and his wife, Natalie, live with their four children on
Turnpike Road. She teaches in the Jordan-Elbridge school district.
Dinner tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 5 to 12. Children
under 5 can attend for free. Tickets to the dinner and 50/50 raffle tickets
can be purchased in advance at Silbert Optical on Genesee Street, Auburn,
and from Nino's Pizzeria locations in Auburn, Port Byron and Weedsport.
