Momo's Fundraiser Saturday for Son of Julian Pena

Fundraiser for the son of Navy veteran stabbed to death last month will be held from 1-8 p.m. at Holbrook bar.

Momo's Bar & Grill is hosting a fundraiser Saturday for the 2-year-old son of Julian Pena, who was stabbed outside the Holbrook bar last month. 

The fundraiser for Jaeden Pena will be held from 1-8 p.m. 

"We are having a Halloween party at night, so this place should be busy," Momo's owner Rich Comunale said. 

All of the money from the fundraiser and a 50/50 raffle will be donated and businesses in the area and bar guests donated gift certificates and gifts, Comunale said. 

Robert Gregory, of Farmingville, is charged with murder in the death of Julian Pena, a Navy veteran. The community has already turned its heart to little Jaeden. 

A Dix Hills man who owns a day care center donated a year of membership, worth $5,500, for Jaeden. Busto's karate school in Holbrook has also donated a membership and an outfit for him to have, Comunale said.

Rich has always been nothing but nice and does such a great job when it comes to fundraisers! This should bring in a butt load :)
