PORTSMOUTH, Va. – MoMac Brewing Company held a fundraiser for Portsmouth Police Officer  Angelina Baaklini, who was shot in November.

MoMac Brewing donated 40 percent of all Jib Blonde Ale and Berkley Blueberry Wheat City Line Pilsner beer sales to help Officer Baaklini with recovery funds from her wounds that she received in the line of duty.

The event also had a 50/50 Raffle and a Chance Auction to raise additional funds for Officer Baaklini.

Baaklini was originally shot on November 6 in the 2500 block of Hickory Street in Portsmouth, Virginia.

The brewery is also hoping that local businesses will also contribute if they can, says a flyer from the event.
