FitzGerald's Nightclub, 6615 Roosevelt Rd., is holding a fundraiser at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25, for a man seriously injured in a hit-and-run accident on Nov. 8.

Matthew Creedon, who grew up in Oak Park, was struck by a vehicle near the intersection of Roosevelt Road and South Taylor Avenue and suffered two collapsed lungs, a broken pelvis, three broken ribs, a fractured back and a torn aorta.

Creedon's friends and family launched an online fundraiser in December with a goal of raising $30,000 to help pay Creedon's medical bills. The GoFundMe.com account had raised $9,205 as of Jan. 22.

The fundraiser at FitzGerald's, dubbed "Music for the man of steel," will feature the bands Vinny and the Jays, Working Mother and Whooly Rhino. The cover is $20.
