SuperTalk Eagle Hour & USM Community Raise $31.5K for former USM Coach’s Medical Expenses
A year and a half ago former University of Southern Mississippi baseball coach Corky Palmer suffered a debilitating stroke leaving him with continuing medical expenses and healthcare costs. In an effort to help Coach Palmer and his family, the SuperTalk Eagle Hour teamed up with Melissa Saucier of Mississippi Made & More and Keithco Inc. to raise money and awareness for Coach Palmer’s needs. Last night before the USM South Alabama baseball game the USM community came together and presented a check for $31,500 to the family of coach Palmer.
“Coach Palmer has been a staple in the USM and SuperTalk Eagle Hour family for many years,” said Bob Ghetti, SuperTalk General Manager of WFMM/WLAU & Host of the Eagle Hour. “We are honored to help Coach Palmer and his family with these expenses and have consistently been blown away by the response and outpouring of love from the entire community.”
As part of the fundraiser, various items were made including a piece of stained glass art made by Barbara Taylor Gandy honoring Coach Palmer. The fundraiser was promoted across the community at various locations, online, at the weekend baseball games at Pete Taylor Park, on the SuperTalk Eagle hour, and on social media generated by Melissa Saucier.
Donations for Coach Palmer’s medical expenses are still being taken at The First Bank in Hattiesburg.
