During today's ceremony, Bennett took time to acknowledge that not everyone is fortunate enough to do things we take for granted, like walking. He pointed out the plight of one Biloxi teen who suffers from a debilitating disease. Thirteen year old, Sarah Gabbard, could not be at today's ceremony because of her health, but her mother, Laurie Harmon, was seated front and center. Bennett handed over a check to Sarah's mother for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, that’s granting Sarah and other children with life-threatening conditions a wish. Bennett says, "I've got a daughter who's six years old and she's healthy and I take her for granted sometimes. I've learned that the most precious thing any of us has is life." A collection was also taken up after the ceremony. Bennett says the team plans to do a lot of good work with and for the community in the future as well.
