Benefit to Help Milam County Good Samaritan

A Milam County man is improving after he was severely injured this weekend while trying to break up a fight.

Police say Jerry Sowders, 48, of Gause was knocked out early Sunday morning outside Rockies Nightclub at Post Oak Mall. Sowders fell and hit the back of his head on concrete.

As of Tuesday afternoon, he is listed in stable condition at the College Station Medical Center.

Friends are hosting a benefit in his honor. It will be held August 2 and 3 in Hearne. An exact location has not been determined, but we're told it should be selected by Wednesday.

The benefit will include a barbecue lunch, horseshoe tournament, and auction. Organizers are asking for donated items for the auction. A golf scramble will also be held on Sunday.

Friends say the benefit will cover medical bills and everyday expenses.

"He does not have to worry about this or that," Jerry's friend Debbie Jordan said. "He'll need food when he comes home, things of that nature. His day to day living. That's what this benefit is for. If he needs medications because whatever it's going to be. That's what we want to help him with."

Jordan says Sowders sustained major head injuries. He is improving daily, but friends say it is not known whether there will be any long term effects.

For more information on the benefit you can contact Debbie Jordan at 979-422-3169 or by email at teamsexy77859@yahoo.com.

An account has also been set up for Sowders at First Star Bank in Hearne. To donate, call 279-3909.
