The Cauliflower Alley Club supports the Gamblins with a $1,000 check
Over these past 14 years, the Cauliflower Alley Club benevolent fund has distributed grants totaling over $40,000 to retired wrestlers, managers, referees and others associated with the wrestling business who have been in need.
Earlier this summer rising wrestling star Jack Gamble had traveled to St Louis to wrestle at the Historic South Broadway Athletic Club, along with a few other wrestlers from the Harley Race Wrestling Academy in separate cars. After being victorious in tag team action with his partner Jon Webb, Gamble traveled back home with his wife Casey , who was sitting in the front of the car, his daughter Rylee, and fellow young WLW student David Schermerhorn.
Life can change in a moment and on this night it was no different. As the were headed home after an exciting night of wrestling tragedy struck. They were hit head on by a drunk driver running from the police.
While, thankfully, David and their daughter Rylee escaped with just some bruises, Jack and his wife were not so lucky, as the two were Life-Flighted to the St John’s Mercy hospital. Thanks to the quality care and love from their family, friends and fans they have been slowly recovering from their injuries. Still, the cost of the medical and home bills have been very high as the two have been unable to work.
During this time many people within both his home and wrestling community have come together to support the family with donations through Paypal, fundraisers and most recently at a Harley Race WLW show in Linn, Missouri.
One of the proud supporters of the Gamblins family was The Cauliflower Alley Club. The CAC is a non-profit fraternal organization, comprising both retired and active professional wrestlers and boxers in North America. The CAC was represented by former CAC Chairman of the Board of Directors, Executive Vice President Karl Lauer who presented the Gamblins with a check out a $1,000.
