MONTVALE, N.J. -- A fundraiser to benefit the family of a popular Montvale bartender who died of pancreatic cancer last month was scheduled for Valentine's Day weekend at the Park Ridge Elks Club.
"Rock-N-Rahl," a benefit to celebrate the life of Mark Rahl, will feature food, live music, a cash bar and more.
Rahl amassed legions of devoted customers -- whom he called "hooligans" -- during 30 years of tending bar at Davey's Irish Pub & Restaurant.
"He loved life and the people he shared it with every single day," organizers wrote.
Cellar 13 and the Rummies, an all-star collection of performers -- many of them emergency responders -- will play throughout the Feb. 13 Saturday event, which runs from 7 p.m. to midnight. Rahl was particularly popular with responders from both Bergen and Rockland counties.
Tickets are $50 and can be obtained at Davey's (5 Park Street) or at Morgan's Public House in Tappan, NY (79 Old Tappan Road).
OR GO TO: Rock-N-Rahl (Facebook)
Tickets are also available for the Super 50/50 raffle. Food will be provided by Davey's and Marc's Deli & Pizza.
All proceeds go directly to Rahl's family.
The Park Ridge Elks Club is at 13 Sulak Lane.
