Lauren Fox's Fundraiser:

A Hero's Tab

In light of recent horrific events in Boston, American citizens are left with a desire to do something to express our gratitude to those who put their lives on the line to protect us. The answer to that came during the hours-long lock down of this amazing city while Bostonians took to their social media sites to report their thoughts, feelings, and the news.

A tweet (that was retweeted over 500 times in an hour) was brought to my attention by actress Sophia Bush. A simple desire by an American citizen in Washington state to be able to deliver beers to Boston as a celebratory gesture to thank the PD, FD and Responders. My buddies and I were quick to agree. While watching my newsfeed on Facebook I came to realize some of my friends knew the injured MBTA Officer, Dic Donohue, whom was shot while rushing to assist the MIT and Cambridge police. The last bar this hero "checked-in" to on Facebook was The Precinct Bar in Somerville, MA, a local hang out for cops due to it being an old Police station.

The Precinct bar has graciously agreed to host a 5 hour open bar for all PD, FD, and Responders to come relax and enjoy drinks paid for by America. It is my hope we can raise at least a $5,000 tab that will be ongoing at the Precinct until funds run out. This is everyone's chance- nationwide- to say "thank you" for a job well done capturing the suspects and continuing to keep us all safe from terrorists. Do it for Boston. Do it for men like Dic Donohue. But most of all, do it because we all love a stiff drink.
Details of the event and dates to follow!

(For those that wish to donate directly to Dic Donohue and his family, here is another campaign to raise money:
