Benefit for Mike Bell, Mable Rollins to be Held at Courthouse on Sunday
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 • Posted February 28, 2013

On December 15, 2012, Mike Bell and Mable Rollins got married in Las Vegas! It was a joyous event, and everyone was very happy!

Unfortunately, tragedy struck on January 19, 2013, a month later. Mike was working on the roof of their home in Blanco and fell. He lay unconscious for hours until their dogs were able to wake him up and he was able to call for help. He was airlifted to San Antonio where he was in critical condition for several days. Mike broke his back, his collarbone, and ribs. After several surgeries, he is back at home and Mable is able to care for him. The doctors feel that Mike should be able to recover from all of his injuries, although he will be unable to work for several months.

Mike and Mable have no health insurance and are surviving on her part-time job at Hill Country Liquor. Please join us at the benefit on Sunday, March 3 at the Old Blanco County Courthouse (noon until 6 pm) to help them through this very difficult time in their lives. There will be BBQ, beer, a silent auction, and a raffle, and Zydeco Blanco will perform from 4pm to 6pm. Please come out and show your support for a very special Blanco couple!
