Over 400 people turned out Saturday to support the Eric Corey Foundation in its Turkey Tracks fundraiser at the Washington Township Community Center. With many of the physically handicapped turkey hunters in attendance, the event raised money for 35 individuals to go hunting with guides in April.
The event was the brainchild of the late Eric Corey who wanted to “play-forward” the experience of hunting that he had been given before he passed away of the ALS disease at the age of 25.
Eric’s father, Doug, thanked everyone for making the event such a huge success.
“We’ve got a lot of great support and I’m tickled,” said Corey. “I think you’ve had a good amount of our fish and I think the San Pierre Fire Department did an excellent job. We can’t thank everybody enough. There are so many that have come out to help us and we just don’t know what to do!”
Those in attendance at the fish fry enjoyed a show put on by Elvis impersonator Quentin Flagg. Also performing with Quentin in a Blues Brothers portion of the entertainment was Bill Downey of Plymouth.
