COMMUNITY AND BUSINESS LEADERS RALLY AROUND LOCAL STROKE VICTIM
Local business owner and Farmer’s Insurance agent receives massive wave of support from his family, friends, and business colleagues.
(San Bernardino, CA) While fishing on a recent trip with friends and business colleagues, Farmer’s Insurance agent Paul Le suffered a debilitating stroke. He has always been a generous donor of his time and money to important community causes including AYSO, Redlands Family Services, and local disaster relief efforts. Now that it is his time of need a group of his friends and business associates have setup a charity golf tournaments with proceeds benefitting his recovery efforts.
“Many of us were with Paul off Catalina Island when he had the stroke,” said Ron Drake, Vice President of the BNI chapter in which Paul is a well-respected member. “Paul is a man many have counted on and he has always been there for others. It is our turn to help him and we are asking the community to join us.”
Mr. Le was quickly taken by boat to a hospital on Catalina, then airlifted by the Coast Guard to a facility in Los Angeles County. He is currently in a local rehabilitation facility and being lovingly cared for by his wife, Jennifer, and three children. The golf tournament will help offset the medical bills being incurred during this time. His road to recovery will be lengthy and challenging.
Local business leaders have offered their support and participation in the golf tournament. Monetary donations have been made, volunteers are organizing the event at no cost, and events such as a helicopter ball drop and “closest to the tee” have all been sponsored to support the Le family. Most graciously, Farmer’s Insurance has stepped forward with a considerable donation to the Le family and now serves as the Title Sponsor for the event.
