Benefit for Martha Manning co-owner of Wildrose Oct 1st

Martha Manning, co-owner of the Wildrose, was seriously hurt in a horrible freak accident last week. While finishing filing up her car with gas at the 76 station at Broadway and Roy, another car came zooming into the station and hit a gas pump. The gas pump burst into flames and the flames and the hot metal were coming right at her. She somehow saw a bit of daylight out of the corner of her eye and dove towards it, saving her life, and somehow her dog, but leaving her with second and third degree burns on her lower legs and some of her feet.

She is still in the burn unit at Harborview and yesterday she had skin grafts which was great. Anyone who has had burns of this nature knows how incredibly painful it is and of course walking or standing behind a bar is going to take some time. I believe that she has some insurance but will be losing, and has laready lost, a lot of work income.

If you would like to help there is a fundraiser for Martha:

Wednesday October 1st at Chop Suey
Across from Piecora's Pizza at 14th and Madison
Doors Open at 8pm
There will be an auction, bands and djs. So please come out and support Martha!!!
