Farrell's Fundraiser for Ryan MCarthy Set for March

Benefit will help the McCarthy family pay for Ryan's medical bills as he continues to recover from New Year's Eve hit and run.

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.
