Benefit dinner at The Fleetwood, downtown San Diego

Posted @ 1:39 PM

Downtown San Diego restaurant and bar The Fleetwood will host a benefit this Thursday, October 25th in support of the four heroic firefighters who were injured this week while trying to save a father and his 15-year-old son from the Harris fire that continues to burn San Diego's east county.

The Fleetwood will donate a portion of its proceeds on Thursday October 25th to the families of Cal Fire Engine #3387 and the Varshock family. Beginning at 4:00 p.m., the restaurant will serve a three-course dinner for $30.00 and will offer drink specials throughout the night. A donation box will be available for patrons to contribute additional donations and a Red Cross representative will be on hand to collect non-perishable items, blankets and clothing for evacuees.

According to reports, the four firefighters were seriously injured while attempting to save 52-year-old Portero resident Thomas Varshock and his teenage son, Richard. Richard and the firefighters were saved in a daring airlift rescue and remain hospitalized. Sadly, Thomas Varchock, who friends describe as a family man, did not survive.

The Fleetwood is located at 639 J Street and is on the corner of 7th & J Streets in downtown San Diego. For additional information, please go to http://www.blogger.com/www.thefleetwood.com or call 619-702-7700.
