The family and friends of a Berwick 17-year-old are raising money so he can attend a re-engineering program in Florida.

Gavin Baudoin was a sophomore in high school when he was injured in May 2020, and now is paralyzed from the neck down. He's been accepted into an outpatient neurological re-engineering program, but his family needs help paying for the very expensive program, because his insurance doesn't cover it.

On June 19 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., the benefit will be held at the Old Building, 3190 Front Street, in Berwick. There will be plate lunches sold and a raffle. You can also help by purchasing advance tickets for the jambalaya and white bean plate lunch, or just donate if you'd like.

Here are some pictures of Gavin:

If you'd like to help Gavin by donating, you can do so via Venmo to @GavinTheGladiator-Baudoin. You can also buy tickets for the plate lunch, which are $8 each. Just make sure you add your name and address on Venmo, so the tickets can be mailed to you.

For more information, call Halie at 985.519.1710 or Denise at 985.518.2065.
