Our beloved co-worker was brutally attacked at 8:30 last night in Berkeley on her way home after a man asked her for a cigarette.
BPD is looking for the attacker, and MaryAnne is in a great deal of pain, she needs our support. This gofundme will be to cover her medical expenses  and other costs regarding her recovery. 

We anticipate that she will need to pay for an ambulance ride, medical, and additional surgery to address facial re-construction and put her back together.

She has the support of all of her co-workers at Donut Farm, but MaryAnne needs your help. She's a Hawaiian girl in California and a kind, happy easygoing spirit! Thank you and please share this;

And above all, be safe out there.
Her attack occurred in Berkeley at Delaware and San Pablo and the attacker is still at large.

Thank you all for donating; Maryanne is recovering and hopes to have her stitches out tomorrow. We brought her flowers and a care package the other day, with notes from co-workers. The main thing is that she knows we all care and support her, and that her sole concern is healing from this vicious attack and robbery. The money from this Gofundme is going to really be needed in the coming weeks and months as full recovery can take a long time.

Thanks to berkeleyside for their coverage of the fundraiser. the link is here;

There is some good detail in the Berkeleyside article about the attack, and now we know even more about what happened last friday evening as the Berkeleyside report included information from the Berkeley Police file. They wrote:

"Friends and coworkers of a woman who received serious injuries in a violent robbery in Berkeley on Friday night have created a fundraiser to help with her recovery.

The woman will need surgery to repair injuries to her face, along with other medical care, according to Josh Levine, who posted the fundraiser Saturday. (Note: The link contains a graphic photograph that is disturbing.)

According to police, the woman was walking in Berkeley between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. Friday in the 1700 block of San Pablo Avenue, near Delaware Street, when a man punched her in the face. The woman fought back, said Berkeley Police spokesman Officer Byron White, but the man choked her until she passed out.

When she regained consciousness, White said, the woman saw her backpack, which contained her laptop, was gone. The 28-year-old Oakland woman was taken to the hospital for treatment for a large cut to her face, White said. There wasn’t much detail about the man who hurt her. Witnesses described a black man who was 20-25 and about 5 foot 9 wearing dark clothing."

Thank again from the staff of Donut Farm, on behalf of our beloved co-worker Maryanne.
