DJ Macy Paradise plays hits tonight at T.F. Brown's to benefit GCASA

post by Billie Owens in Event, T.F. Brown's

Macy Paradise, a professional DJ from Batavia now living in Colorado, will do a benefit show at T.F. Brown's at 10 tonight. People are encouraged to make a donation in the name of Baby Chandler (Zuchs) for the event and proceeds will go to GCASA.

By donating money to GCASA, Paradise says he hopes "to prevent losing another innocent child to violence."

Paradise, who is a father himself, says the news of Baby Chandler's death earlier this month hit him especially hard. Plus, he is a former coworker of Jeffrey Deats, who is accused of causing the 6-months-old's death and who is now at ECMC and not expected to survive after attempting suicide in GC Jail.

Donations will be accepted through 9 p.m. Monday, Dec. 29 at T.F. Brown's, located at 214 E. Main St. in Downtown Batavia.
