Fundraiser for Eamon

$20 cover at the door 8-11pm

Tonight, Doc Holliday’s is holding a fundraiser at Doc Holliday’s Bar for their former bouncer, well known singer and drummer, Eamon Cronin (and friend of the bar for 15 years) who was injured while on tour with his band, “Riders on the Storm“, a worldly renown Doors cover band, in Vigo, Spain. He fell from a 15 foot stage and suffered a near death head injury.

He is still in Spain, without medical insurance, and the club is saying they have no insurance… Although an investigation has begun to hold the club responsible, he has to pay for some of the large medical bills (or they will transfer him to public, inferior care hospital) and is suffering financial hardship due to the injury.

All the information about this head trauma says that the oldest memories come back first, followed by more recent memories. Currently, he is unable to form new memories, which is why he does not remember the day before. He is starting to breathe on his own, and as soon as he can do that full time, he will be released from ICU, to a regular hospital room. It is important to get him home, in familiar surroundings, so his memory can start to come back.
Doc Holliday’s is having a raffle and silent auction*, from 8-11pm. Many local businesses are donating items, such as dinner for two, tattoo time, bar tabs, shoes, clothing, baskets of booze, chiropractor services, massages, several east village bar crawls ( $100 in drinks paid for by the bar) hosted by 2 or 3 Doc’s bartenders per crawl , personal training sessions, personal chef cooking lessons, haircuts, massages, a gold bag, a lava lamp, Bulldog Gin Gift Bags, a mirror, etc…100% of door proceeds ($20 suggested donation 8-11pm) and 100% of raffle and auction proceeds, plus 50% of all bartender tips and 50% of the bar sales are going to the cause.

*Raffle tickets are: 1 for $5, 3 for $10, and 5 for $15…
$3 per ticket for any amount over 5 tickets. Each auction has a different starting bid listed at the top of each auction sheet with the description of the item.
