Cleveland Ohio - November 26th Fundraiser Planned for Couple Injured in Accident in South America

November 26th Fundraiser Planned for Couple Injured in Accident in South America
Cleveland, Ohio – A local man and his wife were seriously injured, with burns over much of their bodies, as a result of an accident in Rio De Janeiro this summer and friends have organized an event to benefit the couple on Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. at Anatomy NightClub and Ultralounge in downtown Cleveland. Taking advantage of the holiday spirit and the traditions of giving and coming together, everyone is invited to the McLaughlin/Lowry Fund Concert and Fund Raiser on Nov. 26 at Anatomy.
David McLaughlin, who is a graduate of North Olmsted High School and has family in North Olmsted and Lakewood, and his wife Sarah Lowry were living in Rio De Janeiro Brazil as part of McLaughlin’s Doctorate program at The Ohio State University and were burned after a manhole cover exploded underneath them in June of this year. One of the couple’s friends Nick Collins has organized the McLaughlin/Lowry Fund Concert and Fund Raiser to help the two with medical and living expenses. The Nov. 26th event will feature the reunion of McLaughlin’s high school band, Booty Scooty, as well as 50/50 drawings and Chinese raffle prizes. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the door or in advance at The ticket proceeds and all the proceeds from the raffles and contests will go directly to McLaughlin and Lowry. Anatomy Nighclub is also donating a portion of alcohol sales at the event to the couple.
Anatomy Nightclub is located at 1299 W. 9th Street in Cleveland Ohio. The McLaughlin/Lowry Benefit will feature performances by Booty Scooty and DJ Rimon, of Trackstar DJs. The event is scheduled from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. and raffles prizes include gift cards to Melt Bar & Grill, studio time at Artist for a day, yoga lessons, memberships to Curves and passes to Swings N’ Things.
