Local brewery comes to aid of beloved coworker

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- A West Michigan brewery is doing everything it can to help one of their own. And they're inviting you to join them.

Alex Atkin is familiar face to both the Grand Rapids brewing and music scenes. He's worked at several breweries and sings for the band Rustbell.

Now, he faces a long recovery after suffering head and spinal injuries in a motorcycle accident while vacationing last week in Guatamala.

Alex is back in the states now, and his co-workers at the Mitten Brewing Company are planning a concert benefit for him. It's the least the co-ower Chris Andrus says they can do for a co-worker they love so much.

"Everyone's been sharing the event, trying to raise money and donating things," Andrus said. "Everyone's asking what can they do. It's been incredible."

That benefit concert for Alex Atkin at The Mitten Brewing Company is January 7th (http://on.fb.me/1O8hjEV). They already have 300 RSVPs.
The GoFundMe page (http://bit.ly/1LTcpKk) has already raised more than $16,000 at the time this story was written.
