Prescott, AZ – On Sunday, May 20th from noon to 6pm, Whiskey Row in downtown Prescott will be the site for the Whiskey Row Fire Fundraiser. The community and local businesses have come together in support of the businesses hit by the tragic fire on May 8th, 2012. The event will feature live bands, food vendors, beer garden, raffle items and plenty of fun. Dave Michelson, owner of The Palace Restaurant & Saloon, and Matt Brassard, co-owner of Matt’s Saloon, are planning the event for their Whiskey Row neighbors. The fundraiser was planned on short notice, but the community and business owners felt the need to support the three businesses destroyed by fire - The Bird Cage Saloon, Pearl’s Place and The Prescott Food Store.
“Business and citizens have all offered to donate their time and services to make this happen. We were all affected by this tragic event,” stated Brassard. “The fire fighters, police and emergency personnel were truly amazing at keeping the fires from spreading. This isn’t just about three businesses that were destroyed, this about a community and a State coming together,” stated Michelson.
