Farrell's of Brooklyn will host a fundraiser in March to help cover a portion of Ryan McCarthy's medical bills.
McCarthy has remained hospitalized following a New Year's Eve hit and run crash that left the West Islip teen in a coma. As medical costs continue to pile up, friends of the McCarthy family have organized fundraisers to help out.
The event, set for Saturday, March 2 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., will feature music, food and a number of raffles including 50/50, baskets and grand prizes including an iPad.
Organizers are requesting a donation of $10 at the door, which includes a buffet.
Those who wish to donate but cannot attend the event may send a check made payable to "Ryan's Hope" to 14 Oak Neck Rd. West Islip, NY 11795.
In addition, community members may donate a meal to the family to help out during this difficult time. A schedule has been established through CareCalendar.org.
Anyone looking to reserve a meal donation can register by visiting CareCalendar.org and inputting the following information:
Calendar ID : 135696
Security Code: 5742
Family friends say McCarthy is improving, but still has a long road to recovery ahead. Three individuals have been arrested in connection with the incident and an alleged subsequent cover-up.
