Three years ago Williamsburg resident, anti-poverty advocate, friend to many of us, and all-around amazing guy Craig Murphey was killed by a truck while riding his bike in the neighborhood.
In his life, Craig dedicated his time and career to the New York City Coalition Against Hunger — and in the spirit of keeping Craig’s memory and goals alive, a memorial fundraiser will be happening this weekend at Brooklyn Fireproof (starting at 6pm on Saturday).
Per NYCCAH and the fundraiser coordinators:
There will be a Hummus “cook off” (hummus was Craig favorite food) sponsored by Whisk, live sets by local bands Sweet Tooth Nelson, Tyrhombus Rex, and Gators, followed by DJ a set by Finger on The Pulse. We will also be selling raffle tickets for $5 or $20 for 5 for a chance to win one of nearly 50 prizes donated by local bars, restaurants, artists and musicians.
And that’s going to be one serious raffle: Prizes range from gift certificates at local spots including Dram, Bushwick Country Club, Enid’s and Lodge, gift certificates at the Sally Hershberger salon, signed goods from bands, tattoo shop sessions, boutique gift cards and more.
It will be a perfect combo of drinks, live music and a good cause — all in the name of a terrific friend.
