Geno's Steaks will donate $10,000 each to the families of firefighter Joyce Craig and Officer Robert Wilson III during a memorial plaque ceremony Friday near the South Philly landmark. Craig, an 11-year veteran and mother of two who was promoted posthumously to lieutenant, died while fighting a basement fire Dec. 9 in West Oak Lane. Wilson, an eight-year veteran and father of two who was promoted posthumously to sergeant, died March 5 in a shootout with two armed robbers at a North Philly Game Stop.

"It is a privilege to continue my father Joey Vento's legacy by honoring and proudly supporting the brave and courageous Philadelphia law enforcement officers," said Geno Vento, the steak shop's owner, who will present the checks.
