*** GET MIKEY HOME ***
Saturday, August 22nd @  5:00 pm - 10:00 pm: 
Get Mikey Home @ PRE FUNK BEER BAR BOISE:
"Our dear friend, Mike Jones, was in a very serious bicycle accident. While going down a hill, he collided with an oncoming motorcycle, leaving him with critical heart and spine injuries.
We were told Mike would never walk again. Mike is paralyzed from mid-trunk down. While this wasn't the news we ever thought we would hear, it is not something we accept as fact. We will continue to be positive and fight for a full recovery. Mike is expected to come home in August. We're so excited but there will be a lot of expenses that go along with this and we are hoping to raise money to GET MIKEY HOME."
