Update on the Bloomingdale library assault victim

I've written about this before. Sadly, there isn't actually much news to report, at least about the victim's condition.

However, there is news about fundraisers that are taking place to help the victim's family deal with the staggering medical costs.

  • A car wash, organized by Hillsborough County Fire Rescue firefighters and paramedics, will take place at the Valrico State Bank, 1815 State road 60 in Valrico, on Saturday, August 16th from 9:00AM until 5:00PM. Click here for a map.

  • The legendary JGLB, will perform at the L.A. Hangout Saturday night, August 16th. The band will take requests for donations and is also donating 100% of their tips to the the fund. I plan on bribing Tommy into letting me sing a song. Don't let that dissuade you from coming. The L.A. Hangout is located at 16411 N Florida Avenue in Lutz. Click here for a map.

  • You can also still make contributions at any Sun Trust Bank branch.

Thanks. I was looking for "Updates on Bloomingdale Victim" when I came upon your blog. Updates are appreciated. Even though I don't know her, but it saddens me to know of this story.

I don't know if you are aware of the Ruskind Chamber of Commerces annual event which has two chamber members running for honorary mayor. Each person picks a charity and the one who raises the most becomes honorary mayor. The truth is that it is both fun and a great way to rally people to raise money for some great charities. This year Aaron Fredricks from East Coast pizza on Big Bend Road is raising money for the Bloomingdale library woman who was raped and battered. The family has a long road ahead of them ... their daughter will be returning home and will have multiple needs to care for her.
A group is meeting on Wednesday evening to begin to put together a fundraising strategy...that it is hoped will live on past the running for honorary Mayor. Presently there are a few events being planned...a bachelor auction, a golf outing just to name a few...
We need as many people from the community as we can get to help this family if you have the time ....please meet us at East Coast Pizza .......we need people from all walks of please consider this invitation
