Fundraiser Being Held for Mana Food Bar Worker

In early July, Ashley Pruneau, a staffer at Mana Food Bar, was viciously and senselessly attacked at her home with a hammer and left for dead. Fortunately, she's in the process of recovering, but she's mounting some hefty medical bills and now the restaurant community is coming to her aid.

On Aug. 8, the Darkroom will host A Benefit for Ashley. Entry is $15 and includes all food and drinks provided that night from De Cero, Lula Cafe, La Sirena Clandestina, Friendship Chinese, Hot Chocolate, Mana Food Bar, Milk and Honey, Vera, West Town Tavern, TipsyCake, Storefront Company and Nana. A silent auction and raffle, with prizes from the likes of Bagel on Damen, Ruby Room, Lush Wine, Piccolo Sogno and more will also take place. And if you want to get the full backstory and make a donation, you can do that online now.
