Get Dave Back to Work Benefit @ MickDuff's Beer Hall

  • MickDuff's Beer Hall

From MickDuff's: We're going to toss back some pints and raise some money for Dave to help get him back to work. We're going to donate a portion of the bar ($2.5 of every beer sold from 6-8pm) and hoping to have some raffle items that will benefit the Dave! Plus, our friend Kevin Dorin will be playing tunes for all of our listening benefit! 

We would love your help! You can do so in many ways: 
1) go here and donate now: https://www.youcaring.com/davescherbarthandstefhaniemeyers-760551
2) Help us round up some raffle items! We're looking for beer related items! 
3) Come to the event, drink beer, buy raffle tickets and help Dave get back to work!

In case you're wondering why, here's Dave's story: at a young age, Dave broke his back and required a surgery to repair some disks. This surgery fixed him for the time being but over the years, scar tissues added up combined with life experiences we all go through, a motorcycle wreck or two didn't help either. It finally became a breaking point and he had to stop working the first of 2017, get on insurance and get his back operated on. They removed a baseball size worth of scar tissue and he's upright walking again. However, being out of work for the first 5 month of the year isn't how any of us plan to kick-off a new year and the surgery bills have added up. We're excited to welcome him back (when he's fully cleared to do so) but until their, we're trying to heal some of the pain this process has caused by offering some support. Thanks for your support!
