Late last Friday, 23-year-old musician and artist Bethany Mooter fell off her bike, suffering massive head injuries. Since then she’s been in the hospital and is making a slow but steady recovery, just recently beginning to open her eyes and speak.
In order to help her family with medical bills, Bethany’s friends have gathered together to host several benefits at the Checkerboard Tavern (1716 E. Sprague). Tonight they kick off with a show featuring the Terrible Buttons in addition to a yard sale, barbecue and raffle, which will run through the weekend. If you can’t make the events but would like to help, you can make donations at the tavern.
