Friends and supporters of Randal “Casey” English turned out Saturday at the Coushatta Country Club for a fundraiser. English was severely injured in a motorcycle accident. While he is recovering, friends put on a huge fundraiser to help pay his medical bills.
Robert Watson staged a “poker run” for cash prizes. Watson said, “It was a great poker run today. We had 25 to 30 bikers take part. There were lots of rallies going on this weekend, so this has been a really good turnout.”
There was plenty of food with jambalaya and corn plates for $10. The food was prepared by Shaver’s Catering and was seasoned just right! There were also t-shirt sales and an auction.
Auctioneer Benny Peek didn’t let technical difficulties with the country club’s sound system slow him down. He auctioned off a few dozen great items donated by businesses and individuals in the area. Peek knew just how to get a reluctant bidder to raise $5 or $10 to bring in a little more for the cause.
The Journal caught a few pictures of the beautifully shinned bikes in the parking lot, the excited crowd of bidders, and the gracious servers piling jambalaya on to-go plates.
