Parasol’s bar in the Irish Channel will host an all-day benefit for the Hogan family Saturday starting at 11 a.m. after the sudden death of owner John Hogan on Christmas Eve.

“Friends, neighbors and employees of Parasol’s have organized a benefit to give back to a family that has given us so much, especially their friendship,” reads an announcement about the event on Facebook. “Come honor and celebrate a great man with a huge heart, John Hogan, and wear a Hawaiian shirt to help us send him off in style.”

Hogan moved from Florida to purchase Parasol’s in 2010, when former operator Jeff Carreras moved down the street to open Tracey’s.
