Mojo’s to Hold Benefit For Grand Rapids Bartender Killed in Bicycle Accident
It's been just over a month since Grand Rapids lost beloved Z's bartender Dave Draugalis, and another bar in town has decided to hold a benefit for his Draugalis' family.
Mojo's Dueling Piano Bar on Pearl Street will be holding a benefit Thursday, September 29. The show, typical of those you've seen if you've been to Mojo's in the past, will kick off at 8 p.m.
The difference with this show, however, is that 100% of the tips given to the performers that night will be given to Draugalis' wife, Nita, and their five children. So, when you're putting in your request for "Livin' on a Prayer", "Sweet Caroline", or any of the other myriad of songs the players perform, you'll be helping out a good cause.
Jake Prell, one of the most familiar faces at Mojo's said that they hope to stuff their tip jars as full as possible to help out Draugalis' family.
Draugalis and his wife were married less than three weeks before his death.
Previous fundraisers for the family included a GoFundMe campaign, and a fundraiser held at Z's on September 7.
