Paddy’s Loft, 1286 Hicksville Rd., will host a fundraiser benefiting a Massapequa family that has recently fallen onto hard times. Sisters Laura and Danielle DiBari were dealt a devastating blow when their father suffered a major heart attack and had to be hospitalized recently. On top of those medical bills, the sisters are faced with caring for their mom, whose living is failing from diabetes and their brother, Joe, who is wheelchair bound and needs constant care.
Friends and family now join together to ask the community to raise money to help the DiBari family with medical expenses.
The fundraiser takes place Friday, Dec. 6 at Paddy’s Loft. There is a $50 entrance fee — half the money will go to the bar, the other half to the DiBari family — included in that price is a 2-hour premium open bar from 10 p.m. to midnight. There will be a cocktail waitress serving drinks, so there will be no waiting at the bar. Gratuity is included in the entrance fee. There will also be trays of appetizers served throughout the night.
The organizers have also concocted a raffle with many different prizes. All of the money raised from raffle tickets will go to the DiBaris.
This is an open event and all in the community are invited — but RSVP via Facebook so that the organizers have an estimated headcount. Just log on to Facebook and search “Fundraiser for the DiBaris.” Anyone who cannot attend but would still like to make a donation can do so.
