Sacramento's popular new beer hall LowBrau will be hosting a fundraiser Saturday night to contribute to a reward fund for information in the case of Josiah Humphreys, the 28-year-old man fatally beaten in midtown earlier this month.
Early in the morning March 17, Humphreys was beaten at the corner of 18th and P streets by three suspects who have not yet been identified by Sacramento police. His family and friends started a reward fund for information that leads to arrests in the case and have raised almost $5,000, said Humphreys' sister, Veronica.
The fundraiser will begin at 7 p.m. at LowBrau, 1050 20th Street, and last until closing time. Several businesses and restaurants in town have donated items for a raffle that will benefit the fund, and several others are sponsoring the event, said Tom Goode, a friend of Humphreys.
LowBrau's general manager, Pat Ramos, went to Jesuit High School with Humphreys and Goode. In addition to hosting the fundraiser, he said LowBrau has agreed to donate $1 of every draught beer sold that night to the fund.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Sacramento police at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP. For donate to the reward fund, visit www.justiceforjosiah.com.
