CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A fundraiser is being held to help victims of the blaze that burnt out four downtown Charleston bars last week.

The 213 East Bay Fire Fundraiser is being held at The Alley and organizers say it will be a night of live music and fun.

Three bands will be playing including Return of the Mac & The Louie D Project.

Guest bartenders from affected businesses The Brick, Squeeze, Speakeasy, and Light will bartend the party. All tips as well as a portion of the food and beverage sales will go towards the East Bay Fire Fund.

There will be four lanes of free bowling for employees/owners/close friends of the 213 businesses and four regular lanes will be open, with half of those proceeds going towards the fund.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday April 17 from 5 p.m. until midnight.
