Sammy Goodman Recovery Fund

Lifelong friend, Sammy Goodman, was jumped by white supremacists at Cactus Park in Scottsdale, AZ on Sunday night (6/28/2020). While Sammy was playing basketball, four white men came from behind and attacked him screaming, "white pride'.  Sammy was just released from the hospital; he suffered kicks to the face and chest resulting in a jaw fractured in multiple places, broken ribs, and a lacerated chin. Because of this hate crime, Sammy will accrue thousands of dollars in medical bills, as well as lost wages. 

Sammy is a tenured employee of the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa, and resides here with his two beautiful children Monica and Sammy Jr. Because of this hate crime, Sammy will experience loss of wages - needing months to physically recover from this horrific experience.
