His name is "BIG" Al Jones. He's 42 years old and in need of a heart transplant. He's on a heart recipient list but he does not know how long his wait will be. He's doing fine now, but he's slowed down a lot and is unable to work much.
He's a King of Prussia native and former football player at Upper Merion High School and Kutztown University. His 6'7" frame is quite intimidating but he is truly a gentle giant. He has the biggest heart, but now unfortunately... he needs a new one.
However much is managed to raise will not even touch the amount that is needed to cover his medical expenses, but every little bit helps.
The benefit for Al will be held at Screwballs Sports Bar and Grille in King of Prussia on Saturday, February 22 beginning at 7:00pm.
