Duff's in Brooklyn, New York will be hosting a benefit for the Dimebag Memorial Fund on Friday, December 9, 2005.
Commented Duff's owner Jimmy Duff: "December 8th, 2004 is a day that we remember all too clearly — the day Dimebag was senselessly murdered onstage in Ohio. Personally, for me, I'll be observing that date in my own way this year, gettin' loaded and crankin' Dime tunes, hopefully keeping it low key.
"The following day, Friday, December 9th, 9 PM, I will be hosting a benefit at Duff's for the Dimebag Memorial Fund for all the super-humans who lost their lives or were hurt that night trying to save/help Dimebag.
"None of us will ever forget Dime, and fortunately we still have the music that will outlive you and I, and will be enjoyed as long as this world spins. What's important now is to celebrate the life and music of Dime, in the fashion he would approve — gettin' ripped and havin' the best fuckin' time we can, and also remembering the others who lost their lives that night, and helping provide for their survivors.
"This will be a TRUE benefit, not 'we'll donate a dollar for every beer' or 'a portion of the proceeds' kind of fucking nonsense. Fuck all to that exploitation horseshit — 100% of the proceeds of the evening , as well as 100% of the bartenders' tips will go to the Dimebag Memorial Fund. As if that wasn't enough, we will also be raffling off a brand new Dean Dimebag Darrell ML guitar, generously donated by our friends at Dean Guitars, along with other lots of other cool stuff. And we will party, in the spirit of Dime.
"Mark your calendars for a great time and an even better cause."
