Default What about Kenny Weisskopf

Kenny was one of 4 that were aboard the 371 boat when it crashed. He is still in the hospital fighting an infection to his leg. I spoke with a good friend of his , Scott, on Thursday and he told me about his situation.
Scott has been pulling Kenny's shift at work, therefore Kenny will get paid for what Scott is doing.
Josh Reithmeyer, another boater that was aboard the 371 boat, he was released from the hospital the same evening of the accident, has gone to Bank of America and opened a "Medical Fund" for Kenny. Josh told me that all you have to do is go to any Bank of America and tell them that you would like to donate to Kenny Weisskopf medical fund that was originated in Maryland.
The Cape, one of the places where Kenny works in southern Maryland, will open at around 3:00 pm on Saturday. All the proceeds from the bar will go directly to Kenny and his family. Josh Reithmeyer and Scott have organized this event.
I don't know Kenny personally, but he was aboard 371 with our boating brothers, therefore, I will attend the fundraiser at the Cape and will donate towards his medical fund.
If you have any questions, please contact Josh at 240-925-7212.
I'm sure that what ever we do to help will be greatly appreciated by Kenny and his family.

Sprained my ankle good so couldn't make it...

Talked with Scott and heard it was a great success-

200ish people buying tons of booze and food and big tips all went in to the Kenny pot!

I'll try to get a final number on the $$$ raised to post.

I'm not sure what BobbyB's fund is up to now but if this is what it takes to get the funds rolling in we need to get a party together sooner than later.
