East Sixth IBIZ District Fourth Friday
September 25, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Its time for Fourth Friday again. This month is a cause near to the hearts of local businesses. HELM Boots is leading the charge for an important fundraiser this month:
Our neighbor and good friend Ray Dibiasi was mugged and robbed on September 7th while walking between some of our favorite bars on the Eastside. He was hit in the head causing a brain injury. He was found on the street, not breathing and CPR was given. Arriving at the emergency room he was taken immediately to surgery to remove a portion of his skull to relieve the pressure on his brain and stop the bleeding. He was kept sedated for 4 days. He’s now awake but is still confused and doesn’t remember what happened to him. His left side is weak due to the injury on the right side of his brain. Fortunately he is insured, but that of course does not cover everything. He’s been in ICU for over a week and will have a long road of physical and speech therapy ahead of him. We are having our 4th Friday event at HELM Boots on September 25, from 6pm-9pm and instead of picking a charity as we normally do we’ve chosen to jump in on the fundraising for Ray. We invite you to join us. Here is a link to the Go Fund Me page for Ray: https://www.gofundme.com/h24zzgcg We will also be accepting cash donations at the HELM 4th Friday event. There will also be a silent auction with donations from other East Sixth IBIZ District businesses.
This is what community is meant to do and what we’re here for – to help each other – especially in times of need. So thank you sincerely for your help!
“We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It’s easy to say, ‘It’s not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.’ Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes.” –F.R.
