Benefit for Craig "El Guero" Alires

Just got word that a benefit is taking place for the family of Craig Alires tonight at Azukar Lounge (1616 J St., Sacramento). Alires was a beloved local bartender known by the nickname "Guero," a tongue-in-cheek term for a light skinned person. Alires poured many a drink behind the bar at Tropicana nighclub and Azur, but his life was cut short on May 21. Alires was killed in a single-car accident on Jackson Rd. Alires was 37.

Donations will be accepted tonight at Azukar, with a fundraiser and gathering starting at 8 p.m. All proceeds from the door and bar will go toward Alires' family. Contributions can also be made to:

Craig Alires Memorial Fund at the Golden One Credit Union
c/o 9552 Dunkerrin Way
Elk Grove, CA 95758
