Known for great drink specials, burgers and infamous bike nights, Deerfield Beach restaurant and bar Crabby Jacks isn’t afraid to be something else: fundraisers.
Beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24, Crabby Jacks will be raising money for the Brewer family with contests, live music, drink and food specials, and giveaways. Among the many prizes are two tickets to the Dolphins/ Saints football game this Sunday (with a free parking pass), and a chance to win a ride for two on the Good Year blimp. You can also win a Jagermeister tap machine, a Jagermeister walking cooler, a Miller Lite grill, along with copious amounts of liquor bottles.
Just behind Crabby Jacks sits the apartment complex where 15 year-old Michael Brewer was set on fire by five teens on Oct. 12. Now in critical condition at Jackson Memorial hospital in Miami, Brewer is recovering from 3rd degree burns on nearly 80 percent of his body.
Since Brewer has been hospitalized for the past two weeks, his family has been at his side ‘round the clock. No one has been working and because of this, it’s been hard for the family to pay other bills.
Currently set up is the Michael Brewer foundation with Bank of America (click here for the Facebook page). However, that money is strictly for the medical attention of Brewer. This past week, the family received help from CBS 4’s Neighbor 4 Neighbor’s fund, where supporters donate to the family. Neighbors Crabby Jacks are looking to raise a minimum $1,000 for the Brewer family in hopes to ease their financial stress.
“The family is with the boy ‘round the clock, no one can work right now,” said Crabby Jacks General Manager Howard Eisen. “We just want to help the family out and show that the community is with them.”
