Get out and support Caleb Medley at these benefit shows
July 31, 2012 Matt Kleinschmidt News
It’s been a little over a week since comedian Caleb Medley was one of those shot at the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in a movie theater in Aurora, CO. Caleb was struck in the head, has since lost an eye and put into a medically-induced coma.
Since the shooting, Caleb became a father as his wife gave birth to a baby boy, Hugo, just hours after the shooting. Many graciously donated to his fund to pay for mounting medical bills. Now some fellow comedians are coming together to put on benefit shows to raise even more money for the comedian.
Here’s where there are benefit shows going on for Caleb. If they are near you, go support. If not, you can still donate here.
