Skinny Legs will host another island benefit event on Sunday.
Hundreds of people (hopefully) will party during what organizers hope will be an "outright crazy, whacko afternoon of fun" to raise money to send the island's Wendy Davis to paramedic school.
Davis works as a firefighter for VI Fire Services. She is primarily stationed in Coral Bay and wants to become a paramedic. Davis is eager to go off island for 15 weeks of certification training at a costof $15,000.
The afternoon's fun will feature an activity described as a combination of "The Price is Right," "Let's Make a Deal," and "A Minute to Win It."
Davis is also a volunteer with St. John Rescue, seeing first-hand the need for advanced medical emergency care on the island and especially in Coral Bay-where it can take 30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive from Cruz Bay. Having Davis in Coral Bay could make a life-death difference.
The St. John Benefit to Benefit St. John, and Wendy Davis, starts at 3 p.m. Sunday at Skinny's. If you're on island, hey, you're going to go to Skinny's anyway, right? Join the party and do some good to help Davis do some good.
