Adam Zepf, (Highlands graduate of 2001) who severely injured his leg and knee during a freak injury at his workplace would love some good old Fort Thomas, Cake Town love. There is a benefit in his honor tomorrow at The Olde Fort Pub.
Zepf, who was working on a horse farm and starting his own business, describes the experience pretty succinctly. However, all you really need to do it look at the bruising and swelling, which is still there, and well - a picture says a thousand words.
"I was picking up a horse's leg to trim the foot. The horse to blew up and starting bucking. It just struck through my leg. There wasn't anything I could do."
As it happens, Adam was caught during a period when he had been without health insurance and has been hampered with thousands of dollars in hospital bills.
"Starting my own business, there are a few things that you sacrifice to further your business. Unfortunately I was one of the unlucky ones you hear about who didn't have health insurance," Zepf said.
This is the type of charity I can definitely get behind. Not because I know him and like him, but because he's a part of our community. Let's see if we can help him out.
"I never wanted to be on this end of a benefit type thing," he said. "I've helped out with others. It's really been weird getting some help with this."
If you are going to head out tomorrow (Friday 11-19) for a date night , family night or just a night out with the ladies or the fellas - do your good deed for the day and eat at the Olde Fort Pub. All it'll take is a $10 suggested donation.
- 10% of the proceeds of your dinner bill will go to his medical expenses, via Danny Krebs (formerly of Pergola) They have a brand new smoke free part of the restaurant - which I will be interested in seeing.
