The horrible shooting in Aurora Colorado last week is every parents worst nightmare come true. It leaves us feeling angry, sad, and incredibly vulnerable and helpless. The owners of the Laughing Devil Comedy Club in LIC are doing something to help one of the victims – a fundraiser this Monday, July 30.
The GM of the comedy club, Scott Sharp, previously was a comic in Denver, and knew one of the victims personally. Caleb Medley was shot while trying to protect his 9 month pregnant wife. You may have heard, she just gave birth while Caleb is still in intensive care. His medical bills are expected to reach close to $2 million.
The fundraiser on Monday is simple – there is a $15 cover charge at the Laughing Devil, which gets you one drink. 100% of this cover charge will be donated to help Caleb and his family. Any additional drinks you may enjoy that night help too – 50% of additional drink sales will also be donated.
We have a chance to help someone who survived the senseless violence – please help us spread the word by telling your friends and coworkers, and let’s raise as much as we can to help this family overcome the huge mountain of debt they now find themselves caught under.
When: Monday, July 30, 6pm
Where: The Laughing Devil Comedy Club, 4738 Vernon Blvd., Long Island City
