Giants announce plans to honor Bryan Stow
The San Francisco Giants today announced that it will dedicate its first home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in honor of Bryan Stow. Bryan was attacked and suffered critical injuries following the season opener in Los Angeles last week.
The Giants will collect donations at AT&T Park on Monday, April 11 to benefit a fund established to support Bryan and his family. Additionally, on Opening Day, Friday, April 8 the team will pay tribute to him during its pre-game ceremonies.
"Bryan is a father, paramedic and lifelong Giants fan who has dedicated himself to caring for others. Now he needs our support as he fights for his life following this brutal and unconscionable act of violence," said Bill Neukom, Giants Managing General Partner and CEO.
The Giants will partner with Bryan's employer, American Medical Response, to collect donations at the gates and throughout the ballpark for The Bryan Stow Fund. Approximately, 100 of his fellow paramedics will volunteer for this effort. The Giants will make an initial $10,000 contribution to The Bryan Stow Fund and encourage all fans to give what they can. The Giants Community Fund will also hold a silent auction during Monday's game with all proceeds benefiting the The Bryan Stow Fund.
Below is detailed information on how to contribute to The Bryan Stow Fund at anytime.
The Bryan Stow Fund has been established through the San Francisco Police Credit Union, specifically serving members of the EMS community.
