Dodgers Hold Fundraiser For Giants Fan Attacked At Stadium
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Dodgers will host a “drive-through” fundraiser Monday for injured Giants fan Bryan Stow, with all donations going to a trust fund established by Stow’s family to benefit Stow and his children.
The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Parking Lot 1 at Dodger Stadium.
Monetary donations of cash and checks will be accepted, with checks being made out to the “Bryan Stow Fund.” Contributions will also be accepted via PayPal and online at sfpcu.org.
Assisting the Dodgers in the fundraiser will be American Medical Response and the club’s media partners — KCAL 9, Prime Ticket, KABC 790 and Univision Radio — and the Los Angeles Times, Major League Baseball reported on its Web site.
Stow, who was wearing Giants clothing, was severely beaten by two men wearing Dodgers apparel in the stadium’s parking lot following the Opening Day game March 31, and remains in critical condition with head injuries.
A $150,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the apprehension of his attackers.
On Wednesday, the Dodgers hired former Los Angeles police Chief William Bratton to advise the team on security procedures. Extra Los Angeles police will also be at the stadium Thursday, when the team returns to Los Angeles to play the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Dodgers were scheduled to play in San Francisco starting Monday, and security has also been beefed up there to stop any retaliation against Dodger fans. The Giants will also hold a fundraiser for Stow during Monday’s game.
