BBQ Benefit for injured Port Neches student

BBQ Benefit for injured Port Neches student

Friends and family of a Port Neches Middle School student who shattered his pelvis when he fell 30 feet on Nov. 23 are holding a barbecue benefit to raise funds for his medical treatment. 

Jake Plante, an 8th grader in Port Neches, is still recovering from the injuries he sustained in the fall. Friends of Jake's are asking that the community come out to support him and his family from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Classic Barbecue, 1107 Port Neches Ave., on Jan. 16. Barbecue plates are $10 each and the proceeds will go toward Jake's medical treatment. 

The event is being sponsored by Allstate, Napa Auto Parts, Golden Triangle Emergency Center, and multiple motorcycle clubs.
