Help Alfonso & Dakota w/ Med Bills

Wednesday night Desi and Cody played a last minute impromptu gig at the Colony. Things were going great and we were having a blast playing an intimite show for our friends and family. Then, a group of guys came in the bar that no one had seen before.. they were big guys and a little rough around the edges but we aren't the judgemental type. As the night went on they requested the song "Smells like Teen Spirit" which we didn't know... and couldn't perform without having a full band anyways.  I (Cody) said "Hey if you throw a dollar in the tip jar I'll play another song by Nirvana." (Which I did do even though they didn't tip) During the song  they got angry and started calling Desi names and making threatening physical gestures at her. Desi got on the mic and said "You guys need to leave." That's when the bartender, her brother Dakota, and the Hernandez Brothers (David and Alfonso) stood up and politely asked them to leave as well. They became hostile and a fight broke out that lasted 10-15 minutes. Every time we thought we had calmed them they attacked again. By the end of it all, almost all of us sustained some injuries... but none as bad as Alfonso and Dakota. Alfonso has a fractured bone in his neck and may need a screw in his jaw. Dakotas knuckle was shattered and will need surgery for it to heal correctly. They shouldn't have to pay for being heroic. They were hurt the worst because they fought the hardest and would not back down even though these guys were obviously beefed up and were out looking for a fight. Today (Feb. 23) is my birthday. I can think of no better gift than for you all to help in any way you can. I know Desi and I have asked on Kickstarter before, and we promised we were done with Crowdfunding... but this one isn't for us. It's for a couple of guys that bravely stood up for us. Thank you all so much.
