From the crowdsource site created to help Oakland waiter Drew Cribley recover lost wages and pay his medical bills:

Many of us were upset about the Zimmerman verdict, and many of us registered our concern in responsible ways.  But one masked thug decided to take a hammer to the face of lifelong Oaklander Drew Cribley (Flora/Fauna waiter), who was just doing his job that night.

Luckily Drew has health insurance and he’ll recover from this attack.  But his insurance won’t cover all the emergency and followup costs from this brutal assault.  Join Oakland Port Commissioner Bryan Parker and community leaders to help raise $6,000 to help defray the medical costs.

You can learn more about how Drew is doing with his recovery in this story.

Also, please join us at Fauna (sister bar to Flora) on Wednesday, August 24, 2013, from 7-9p for cocktails and to support Drew and the businesses impacted.  1900 Telegraph Avenue, Oakland, CA.

Any amount will make a huge difference, and send a clear signal that Oakland takes care of its own.
