"I met them when I was hosting the Darrell Gwynn foundation at the hard rock , It was a fundraiser for paralyzed people who need a more mobile wheelchair, one that can stand up move around, lean back, and operate with a mouthpiece. The government only supplies regular Basic wheelchairs. A lot of people die of bedsores because they are not mobile enough, and these special wheelchairs help out a ton with that. And with the pool, it will help with all of his physical therapy, he is improving in small doses. Now he will be able to enjoy the swimming pool with family and friends and neighbors as well as having physical therapy. He was a recipient as well as the firefighter named Derek in Broward, we are building three pools for recipients, so I teamed up with the Darrell Gwynn foundation and Van Kirk pools, who does all the pools for my projects, they have hearts of gold, and they love what We do for the block party. I met Darrell Gwynn at the Barrett Jackson car auction gala a couple years ago, he said he loves what we do for the kids in the community and he asked if I would ever consider helping out the foundation, so I went down to the hard rock and help raise money for them and this came about, We raised $75,000 with the help of Van Kirk pools."
