Natasha McShane pictured with the Irish prime minister Brian Cowen in 2009 (RPS Group), via
Cans Bar and Canteen (which is two blocks away from where McShane and Jurich were attacked and robbed) held the fundraiser in order to help Jurich with her steep medical bills and to offer support during her road to recovery. A silent auction was part of the fundraiser, and the bar pledged to donate 15% of the silent auction sales to Jurich and her family. A fundraiser for McShane has been organized for June 4 at two different locations. Additionally, Chicago band The Lawrence Arms will hold a benefit concert for McShane and Jurich on May 19 at Subterranean.
