Benefit for Jimmy Arnold

First of all, my thanks go to Scotty Mankoff for bringing this story to my attention. This past Christmas Eve, James "Jimmy Arnold", who is the bar manager at Poor David's Pub, was brutally assaulted. He has remained in a coma since the incident, and is still in the intensive care unit. To help with the mounting medical bills that Jimmy's family is accumulating, Poor David's Pub is holding a fundraiser on February 15th to help with the medical bills. The event, lasting from 2:30 - 9:30 p.m., will feature a raffle, silent auction, and of course, live music.

Here are some things needed for the event:

  • Volunteers to help with the merch table, raffle, and/or silent auction.

  • Items of value for the raffle or silent auction.

  • Musicians to play the benefit show. Contact Colleen Morgan for more info on playing or volunteering.

One of the things I love about the local music scene is that people tend to rally together in times like these. For any of you who are Poor David's Pub regulars or who knew Mr. Arnold personally, this is an event to be at.
