Dine Out for Darryl Russell family – lost home to fire, January 4, 2017
January 14, 2017 – Candicci’s Restaurant and Bar will be hosting a Dine Out event for the Darryl Russell family, Monday, January 16th, 2016.
50% of all sales will be donated to the family to help them re-establish their lives after loosing everything to a fire on Wednesday, January, 4th, 2017.
With a new grandson in the house this family needs the love and compassion of the community to get back on their feet.
Russell has worked for Candicci’s for 36 years.
The fire broke out around 9:30 pm after Darryl and family brought their new grandson home from the hospital. The family was in the second floor of the home when the fire broke out. Darrell rushed to save them, but the down stairs had become impossible to pass.
Darryl had to drop his family, yes, including his new grandson, from the second story window. Fortunately, a trusted neighbor was helping to save the family and caught the new grandson. However, he suffered from smoke inhalation and was rushed to the hospital with the rest of the family.
What a way to enter the world! Born, taken home, met the face of death with fire, dropped from the second story window and then rushed back to the hospital.
Bob Candice has created a GoFundMe page to help raise money for the family as well. To date, the community has donated approximately $4,000, but more needs done.
We sincerely appreciate the love and compassion of the community as they have donated cloths, household items and money, but more needs to be done according to Bob Candice, manager of Candiccie’s.
Please join us Monday and help this family. The Candicci’s family is doing what they can to help the Russells but we need more help.
Remember, Monday, January 16th, 2017, 50% of all sales will be donated to the family. Lets help this family have a great 2017 and welcome the new grandson into the world the right way, with love and compassion.
