ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Police Department will hold a fundraising event this week to help the family of Officer Shawn Smiley.

Christmas Smiles for Smiley will be held Wednesday, Nov. 28 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Park Bench Pub in Buckhead.

The event will feature an open bar with beer, wine and appetizers. Instead of paying for refreshments, the APD is asking attendees to donate money to the Smiley family.

Park Bench Pub is located at 34 Irby Avenue.

Shawn Smiley and fellow officer Richard Halford were killed in a helicopter crash Nov. 3 while searching for a missing child.
