Huck Finn's on the Water Hosts Shalim Augustine Benefit

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Huck Finn's on the Water hosted a silent auction to benefit the family of Shalim Augustine on Thursday night.  All proceeds from the auction will go towards defraying the cost of Augustine's funeral.  Augustine, who drowned in the Black River last week, was a bartender at Huck Finn's on the Water for three years.  

Augustine's coworkers, who helped organize the event, said that they considered him to be family and felt like they had lost a brother.  They said that the event was what Augustine would have wanted.  Huck Finn's on the Water Manager Patty Baumgartner said they did not want Augustine's family to have to worry about finances while they were grieving.  

Servers and bartenders donated all their tips during the evening to benefit Augustine's family.  Musicians Joe Cody and Jan Arden, who performed during the evening, also donated their fee to the Shalim Augustine Benefit Fund.
