On November 30th, three members of Bar Crudo were involved in a fatal hit and run that left one dead and two critically injured.

Those that know and love Bar Crudo for their excellent food and sincere hospitality have been materially shaken by this horrible event. Several bloggers in the Bay Area have not only expressed their heartfelt sympathy but are also sounding the call for help from the Bay Area foodie community.

Help can come in many forms, specifically, eating at Bar Crudo and/or attending the benefit at Bar Crudo tomorrow, December 10th from 12-6 where the suggested donation is $10-$25. The money raised will go to the victims and their families.

From Bar Crudo:

We’ll be serving oysters, crudo, wine, beer, and guest hors d’oeuvres. Hog Island Oyster Company has generously donated 800 oysters to be served at this event (that’s a lot of oysters people, we need your help!), Range, and Le Petit Robert will also be donating food, with other restaurants and business’s soon to join in support of this benefit.

For those touched by this tragedy, it isn’t going to be a merry Christmas for a long time. Give what you can, eat at Bar Crudo when you can, and help those who whose lives have been changed forever.
