Sealy: Cody Leger Benefit, American Legion Hall, 1630 Meyer St (Hwy 36), Sealy, TX, with the Swingin’ On Band featuring Sonny Rice, Terry Barnett , John Steele, Mary Barnett, and Matlock Rice. Special guest fiddlers Paul Schlesinger and Jeff Duncan. Sgt. Cody Leger and his family have been a part of the Sealy area for over 25 years. He graduated from Sealy High School in 2008 before enlisting in the U.S. Army. He was a member of the 82nd Airborne deployed to Afghanistan and Kuwait over two tours, and was planning to re-enlist. A motorcycle accident in March changed his life forever. Leger suffered compound fractures in his right leg and his femoral artery was damaged. Numerous other injuries threatened his life, causing him to spend 34 days in intensive care with five major surgeries over a period of less than 3 weeks. He recently had surgery on his face and a bone graft to replace missing bone in his leg. The 2008 SHS grad did not have insurance, so the medical bills – coming in at more than $500,000 – are insurmountable. His church family at the All Around Cowboy Church in Sealy is sponsoring this fundraiser. For more information call Sonny Rice at 979.885.9296 or 979.885.1155; allaroundcowboychurch.com. $20/ticket includes meal from Hinze's BBQ. Doors open: 5 PM; silent auction: 5 PM; meal 6 PM; auction for special items donated by local businesses and residents will begin at approximately 7 PM; music: 8 PM.
