NEMO DESIGN VALENTINE'S BENEFIT DANCE
Portland, Oregon – In celebration of the almighty power of love, Nemo Design and Infinity Images will be hosting a Valentine's Day dance and benefit on February 14, 2009 to raise money for our good friend Eric Davidson.
The benefit will take place between 9pm and 1am at 1875 SE Belmont St. Portland, OR 97214. Eric – husband to Nemo's former Director of Production, Anna-Carin Davidson – was hit by a drunk driver while riding his bike on May 10, 2008, and then left lying in the street when the driver fled.
The 36-year old mortgage broker and avid outdoorsman suffered brain swelling and was in a medically induced coma for weeks. Although the driver pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and drunken driving, he had the minimum per-person car insurance required by Oregon law for bodily harm – only enough to cover Eric's medical care for the first several hours after the crash. Anna-Carin had to leave Nemo due to the accident and has spent nearly every moment since by Eric's side.
“Eric is home now after six months at the hospital and I'm his caregiver,” says Anna-Carin. “The challenges we're facing daily are extremely difficult – he is having to relearn the very basic skills we all take for granted as a person – and our financial situation is really rough. But Eric is a survivor, and he's a fighter. He will get through this, I know it.”
Anna-Carin and Eric need our help! So . . . come celebrate life and love with us this Valentine's Day from 9 pm to 1 am right here at Nemo. There will be dancing, complimentary cocktails and other treats – plus a raffle/giveaway featuring prizes and packages from Portland-area businesses to sweeten the pot. A $10 suggested donation at the door, and all proceeds from the raffle, goes to the account maintained for Eric at all Washington Mutual branches.
