A fund to help the children of Nathan Byrd has been set-up IATSE Local 30. Byrd, a single father with 2 children ages 13 & 15, was the operator of the follow-spot who lost his life last Saturday when the stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair.
The family is struggling to find money for funeral, as well as clothes for the kids to attend the funeral, school clothes, school supplies, etc. If you would like to help, please send your donations to:
IATSE LOCAL 30
ATTN: NATHAN BYRD FAMILY
1407 EAST RIVERSIDE DRIVE
INDIANAPOLIS, IN 46202-2037
Oh, and please be sure to mark your donation as “For The Nathan Byrd Family” or else it will go into a general fund and not to his orphaned kids.
