Giants third base coach Tim Flannery joined forces with Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir to play a benefit concert for injured Giants fan Bryan Stow Saturday at the Uptown Theatre in Napa.The concert raised around 40,000 for The Bryan Stow Foundation.

Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy wasn't at the event but still found a way to contribute.Peavy purchased an acoustic guitar that was signed by the Highwaymen from the silent auction as a gift for Flannery, who taught Peavy how to play the guitar when they both were part of the San Diego Padres' organization.Comcast SportsNet's Amy Gutierrez surprised Flannery with the gift on stage during the concert.
Stow was attacked in the parking lot following the game between the Giants and Dodgers. Two men -- Marvin Norwood, 30, and Louie Sanchez, 29 -- have been charged in the beating.The pair pleaded not guilty to mayhem, assault, battery and other counts in August.Stow's family has filed suite against Frank McCourt and the Dodgers. The Dodgers have filed suit against Norwood and Sanchez.
