Local DJs donate to family of hit-and-run victim
A pair of local DJs are donating the door receipts collected at three upcoming end-of-summer parties at a local establishment to the family of a bicyclist killed this week in a hit-and-run.
Dmytro Palii, 20, died Tuesday from injuries suffered when he was hit by an alleged drunk driver on the Beach Road in Kill Devil Hills.
The Ukraine national was an employee of Food Lion in Nags Head, and the retailer is now accepting donations to Palii’s family at locations nationwide.
DJ Andy and DJ Misha will be spinning tunes at the Summer Beat end-of-season student parties each Sunday the rest of August at Kelly’s Restaurant and Tavern, and both have a personal connection with the homeland of Dymtro Palii.
“My son is half Russian, and Misha is a native of Russia, and we both understand how difficult this is for Dymtro’s family,” said Andy Scoggins.
