Crawfish boil helps benefit fellow Gulfport firefighter's mother

Posted: Updated:
GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Some Gulfport firefighters took advantage of the Super Bowl excitement to help one of their own on Sunday.

They held a crawfish and shrimp boil for a fellow firefighter whose mother lost her home to a fire in Louisiana in December. About two weeks after that, his father went into the hospital for a double bypass surgery.

Organizers cooked shrimp and crawfish and sold them in meals that included potatoes, corn and beer at Three Brothers Lounge on East RailRoad Street in Gulfport. Those meals went for $10 each.

"We're just trying to help somebody locally. Help somebody's family that we actually see being affected by it. It's a good cause. We're trying to help firemen. You know we're in a budget crunch and we're trying to raise money to help them anyway we can," Trey Ramage said.

Ramage helped cooked the shrimp and crawfish meals. He said their goal was to sell 150 meals.

"So we're just raising a little bit of money for them to help cushion the blow," Ramage added. "Help them get their property cleared off. That way the city doesn't do it and charge them an arm and a leg for it."
