There will be a gumbo cook-off Saturday at Willie’s Campground in Washington, La., to benefit the family of Tim Fitzgerald, the Daily World reported.

Fitzgerald, an Opelousas native and son of Mary and Johnny Fitzgerald, was injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year that has left him unable to work.

“He and his wife, Courtney, have six children ranging in age from 18 to one and a half,” said Mary Fitzgerald, who is assisting with the fundraiser.

The accident broke Tim Fitzgerald’s knee and tore out the nerve endings in his left arm, leaving him unable to use it.

“He has already undergone surgery and will need a number of additional surgeries,” his mother said. “All proceeds will go to help Tim and his family with medical and related expenses.”
