Bridges Golf Club hosted benefit fundraiser for Brayden Peterson

In Bay St. Louis this weekend, Bridges Golf Club hosted a benefit tournament for the young man who had a medical emergency during the Diamondhead Christmas Parade.

Proceeds from the tournament went to helping Brayden Peterson’s family with medical expenses.

The Hancock High freshman went unresponsive for several minutes after suffering a medical emergency.

He was taken to a children’s hospital in New Orleans, but he’s now back home recovering. He’ll need long-term care due to his brain injury.

In a show of support, Brayden’s classmates came out to the tournament as well. Hancock County District 3 Supervisor Kodie Koenenn said, “They released him a couple weeks early so he could start outpatient. He’ll continue with Ochsner in Slidell, going for a few hours a day, every day of the week for a while. And hopefully just continue to build those muscles back, continue to stimulate that memory and his brain on where he’s at right now. He has progressed really well. But all in all, the young man has shown us his resilience and how strong he is.”

A golf cart raffle winner will be announced on the Gulf Coast Carts Facebook Page on February 16th.
