When Sean Perseo of Sunbelt Rentals learned about the work Erie Police Sgt. Tom Lennox was doing with the Police Athletic Program, he wanted to reach out.

He did in a big way Monday night at the Lt. Dan Benefit concert in Erie.

Perseo donated $20,000 to PAL.

Moments late on the Liberty Park Stage, Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine matched the offer.

The Police Athletic League received $40,000 from Sunbelt Rentals and the Robert Irvine Foundation.

Lennox told Erie News Now, "This is a game changer for us. Sean, Robert and Gary Sinise just roll up their sleeves and get it done. Some people talk, they take action."
