Eight year old Trey Parsons was killed in a traffic accident at the intersection of Pine Island and Burnt Store Roads on October 15th. His father David, a local shrimp boat captain, was also in the car and survived but with serious injuries that have left him unable to work.
Jim Frock who owns the Seven Seas Bait and Tackle shop on Matlacha is organizing the benefit which will be held at 5149 Pine Island Road this Saturday starting at 10:30AM and ending with a bonfire after dark. Several local bands will be playing all day and a you can eat a lot of great local seafood, too. Read more about it here.
There will be a silent auction and I've donated a half day fishing charter so please go out there this Saturday and bid on it. It'll will be a good time and every dollar you spend will go right to the Parsons and their two children.
