Fundraiser for Sailor Fighting for Life

As the Gulfport sailor who was severely burned continues to battle for his life, a local hot spot has stepped up to help.
Pop Brothers is hosting an all-day fundraiser tomorrow to benefit 20-year-old John Doucet of Gulfport who was severely burned after being shocked by a power line at the Gulfport Yacht Club.
The owners of Pop Brothers have personal ties with the Doucet family. The tragic accident has really hit close to home for them.
Co-owner Shannon Arzola says she knows the community will help the Doucets because that’s what she says living on the Gulf Coast is about. “The Coast does that. I mean, I survived off the good will of others after Katrina. That’s just what we do. We help each other. We’re one giant Coast and this is how we take care of each other.”
Half of the money made from every popsicle will go towards the Doucet family. The fundraiser will start at 11 and it will go until business stops.
