Mick O'Shea's Irish Pub to host trivia benefit for Capital Gazette fund
Hallie MillerThe Baltimore Sun
Mick O’Shea’s Irish Pub is slated to host a benefit event Thursday in honor of the five Capital Gazette employees who lost their lives in the June 28 attack on their newsroom.
The event, hosted by BMore Knowledgeable — Trivia for a Cause, will feature a live trivia game and raffle prizes, according to event coordinator and emcee Stephen Walsh. He said the pub allowed him to hold the event in their space at no cost, and all raffle vendors donated their prizes for free.
Walsh also said he sought to raise money for the Capital Gazette Families Fund after learning that a frequent trivia player’s sister, Rachael Pacella, had survived the shooting.
“We’re not charging cover or for trivia, and all gifts and prizes will be donated,” Walsh said. And all proceeds will be donated to the fund, he said.
The game starts at 6:30 p.m. and should end around 9 p.m. It is open to the public.
“Anyone who wants to drop by or just buy a raffle ticket can come,” he said. “The more people there, I’m sure the more money we’ll raise.”
The Capital Gazette Families Fund provides immediate relief and long-term recovery support to the victims’ families. For more information, go to https://bsun.md/2LqbwkI.
