Friends of Jonathan Sokoloff are seeking donations for a charity auction for tomorrow afternoon’s fundraiser at Home Plate Bar-B-Que with benefits going toward the care of Sokoloff and his family.

Event organizers Morgan McKinnon and Ashley Heath, Sokoloff's friends and colleagues, are organizing the donations, and they've already received a massive pledge of support.

So far contributors include:

Home Plate Bar-B-Que (two free drink tickets and a bottle of Fireball)

CrossFit86 (six foundation classes)

El Gran Bocado (RMB 2,000 voucher)

Sand & Pebbles (RMB 2,000 voucher)

The Beijinger (two RMB 1,000 Elements Club drink vouchers)

The Beijinger (Black Golden Tanning vouchers)

SinoScuba (Shark Interaction Experience for two, worth RMB 1,300)

Andy’s Craft Sausages (RMB 300 voucher)

Slow Boat Brewery (RMB 300 voucher)

Fight Republic Gym (one-month membership)

Yin’s Roof Top (Champagne)

Plan B (keg of beer)

Yin Bar (free drinks)

Beijing Playhouse (show tickets)

beijingkids (nail salon vouchers)

Sokoloff currently remains on life support in an international department of a local hospital with low brain activity. The 32-year-old international school teacher from Florida was involved in a scooter accident last weekend in the early hours of Saturday morning near his home in Shunyi.

According to McKinnon, Jonathan's sister will arrive in Beijing Friday to stay with him during this time.

Friends of Sokoloff have also organized an indiegogo crowd funding page where donations can be made on his behalf. Funds raised on both the crowd funding page and at tomorrow’s event will go toward Jonathan’s care as needed as well as to the ongoing medical expenses of his mother, whom Sokoloff has been helping support on his teaching salary.

The fundraiser will be held tomorrow, May 1 at Home Plate Bar-B-Que (Sanlitun) from 11:30am-2:30pm.

Donations boxes will also be available Friday at the event for those who would like to contribute.

Those looking to donate additional auction prizes can contact McKinnon at 131 4663 3913.
