T Nation

San Fran. (this Fri. 1-20-12) Charity Event

Hi Fellow T-Nationers,

A friend of mine is in need. I wanted to reach out to all San Francisco bay area people on here because a friend’s mother has been badly burned in a house fire, which claimed the life of his father just before Christmas. She has been in the ICU in a burn hospital over a month now, and expenses are adding up quickly. Any help in any way would go a tremendous distance toward making a difference.

Here’s the message from my friend:

Alright everyone. As some of you may know, my mom has been in the burn ICU at West Hills Hospital in LA following the house fire that claimed my dads life on Dec 10.

To help cover expenses my sister has arranged a bar fundraiser in SF tomorrow (1/19). The bar will be donating part of the proceeds to the charities which have been providing lodging and expenses for my family.

The bar is called McTeague’s. It is located at 1237 Polk, between Sutter and Bush. It is next to a popular bar called Mayes. The benefit takes place in the back part of the bar, so please walk all the way to the back and open your tab there.

I realize this is short notice, but every little bit helps. I will try to be there as soon as possible after work.

Please repost this if you are in the bay area. Here are the stories:

I think the news link isn’t working. I’ll see if I can get that to work.
Thanks for any help. Please repost this anywhere you can and thanks for your support.
