Central community rallies for injured teens

Jambalaya fundraiser planned to help pay medical bills

Monday, January 4, 2010 - 5:56pm

Two separate car accidents injured three Central teenagers in December.

Now—the entire community is getting together to show their support.

18-year-old Kelsey Lieux was in a car wreck 3 weeks ago.

She's been in a medically induced coma ever since.

So—friends of Kelsey are selling t-shirts and bracelets to raise money for her medical bills.

And as her story spreads—so does the help.

"It's a wonderful thing, people that you don't even know that are jumping and taking this on," says Charles Lieux.

Community members are organizing a jambalaya dinner on January 16th to raise money.

The fundraiser is also helping out 2 other crash victims who had their accident just 2 days before Kelsey's.

Tickets are $6 a piece.
