Victor Schlafer, a bartender at John’s Bar in downtown La Crosse, was brutally stabbed back in December while breaking up an altercation inside the bar. Luckily, Vic survived his dire injuries, but required an emergency surgery and a long hospital stay before he was back on his feet.
Due to his large hospital bills and his inability to work, John’s Bar will be holding a benefit for Vic on Sunday, February 5th starting at noon. There will be live music from the Brown Palm Band, Mr. Blink, and Ship of Fools. Plus, many raffles, tip boards, and drawings.
Cost is $5 at the door and all are welcome.
