A Day for Donnie

A Day for Donnie
Hi everyone! We will be holding a benefit("A Day For Donnie")for Donnie Reynolds on Saturday, April 12th at the Gonzales Recreation Center.

Donnie was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Esophageal Cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. Donnie is 43 and married to
Robin(Barrow)Reynolds. They have 3 children and live in Prairieville. Proceeds will help the family with mounting medical bills and living costs.
There will be bands, food, beer, games, live auction, silent auction, face painting, country store and more.
We welcome any donations of handmade items for the country store, sweets for sweet booth & auction items for silent & live auctions.
We are asking for volunteers to help with booths. If you are anyone you know would be interested in donating some of their time to help please let me know...via myspace or email me at
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Also if anyone is interested in joining us for our benefit meetings let me know. We welcome anyones input & ideas.
We will also need security for the entire day. If you know of any officers who would be willing to donate a couple hours of their time , we would really appreciate it. We have to have 2 officers there at all times.
Please come out and help support this family and also help raise awareness of this disease. It is the 2nd deadliest cancer and it starts with Barrett's Esophagus which is caused by acid reflux. Know your risks.
Get Checked!
Any other services or goods or ideas are all welcomed!
Also on April 19th there will be a benefit for cancer survivor Eric Waggenspack(policeman for Ascension Parish)at the Prairieville Flea market. There will be jambalaya, music & more.
More info. coming soon!
