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.

For more information call Kathy LoMascolo at 315-406-2876, Donna Bennett at 315-730-3246, Marki DiVietro at 315-246-6668 or Megan Vitale at 315-730-7321.
