Meet Jason Statts: The Story So Far
More then five years ago, on June 28, 2008, Jason Statts, a local musician and talented artist, was a victim of a violent crime in Savannah, GA. Jason was shot point blank in the neck and suffered irreparable damage to his spinal column. Since then, he has relied on government assistance to cover his mounting medical costs and the support of his friends and family to keep him smiling. Cuts in his benefits have caused Jason’s health to decrease exponentially in the past few years. His family and friends are currently organizing another fundraiser to help fill in the gaps in his finances so that he can receive the benefits and medical assistance that he requires. Our 2012 benefit was named by the readers of Connect Savannah the “Best Benefit/Gala of 2012.” This year’s benefit, “StattsFest 2013” will be held on Sunday, October 13, from 2 to 8 p.m. at Muse Arts Warehouse in downtown Savannah. This family friendly fundraiser will include loads of activities for kids, a silent auction, raffles, food prepared by local chefs and live music by Savannah’s best local bands. We are again asking for the community’s help to support one of our own, and we hope that you can be a part of it.
