Tammany Talk: Community Music School registration begins
Gros, 46, has been diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig’s Bug. He was a welder at Exxon Mobile in Chalmette until the illness.
“We are people from St. Bernard who relocated after Hurricane Katrina,” said Gina Wellmeyer, one of the friends of the relations in St. Tammany Parish who are trying to organize support. Gross and his wife, Debbie, have three children.
His friends are hosting the fun-filled evening, which includes viable music by Peabody, a deejay, raffle, drinks, silent auction, parade of prizes, and children’s games. Tickets are $50 per full-grown, which includes two Parade of Prizes tickets, beer, wine, soft drinks. Children 15 and younger are admitted for unrestricted. Some food will be available for purchase, or participants may bring their own food.
A separate raffle will be held for a 17-foot specially aluminum Outlaw mud boat and trailer, engine not included. The value is approximately $7,000. Debbie Gros’ cousin is the holder of Outlaw boats and built the boat and donated it for the raffle. Raffle tickets are $20.
