Start St. Patty's Weekend by Supporting a Peters Boy

Moscow Mule is playing a rare happy hour show Friday to benefit Braedon Ondos and the PCD Foundation.

On Friday, Pittsburgh band Moscow Mule is playing a rare happy hour show to benefit an 11-year-old boy, who was born with primary ciliary dyskinesia, and the PCD Foundation.

A cause that will tug at your heart strings, the PCD Foundation strives to improve the quality of life of patients with PCD and to develop the means to find a cure.

PCD is a progressive disorder affecting organ systems that rely on ciliary activity for proper function, including the upper and lower respiratory tract, the middle ear and reproductive organs. 

is one of a few hundred people who've been diagnosed with PCD.

"There are an estimated 20,000 who haven't been diagnosed because of its misconception—it mimics so many diseases," said Lori, Braedon's mother, in a previous interview.

The band will play at Finnigan's Wake on the North Shore from 5-8 p.m. A $5 donation at the door is requested, with proceeds benefiting the foundation directly.

If you're looking for a great way to ring in St. Patrick's Day weekend—and give back—this is it!

Finnigan's Wake is located at 20 East General Robinson Street. The Ondos family asks you please share this event with your friends and co-workers whether it be via Facebook, etc.

This is a wonderful story! I have an 11 year old daughter with PCD, also. We'd love to know more details on how to do a fundraiser like this. I am so glad to see the PCD foundation is getting some recognition. Good luck!
