Wrestlers help young fan
Logan benefit


Wrestlers, both good guys and bad guys, will come together this Saturday to help one of their biggest fans – 10-year-old Logan Furey who is desperate need of an operation for a lesion on his brain.


The fundraiser will be held at the old cheese plant at the intersection of the Bypass and Red Road (home of Tennessee All-Pro Wrestling) all-day this Saturday beginning with a yard sale at 8 a.m. There will also be concerts by several bands including Dixie Voodoo Revival and an appearance by KISS tribute band member Robert Bentley. A car and bike show will also be held. There will be an auction at 6 p.m. The day’s events will conclude with a show at 8 p.m. by Tennessee All-Pro Wrestling with all proceeds going to Logan’s Heroes, the benefit set up to assist Logan and his family with their medical expenses.


Logan suffers from a multiple cyst and lesion on his brain which will require an operation. Logan and his mother are long-time wrestling fans and are in attendance most every show, according to TAP Wrestling owner Richard McDaniel.


“He’s a great little guy,” McDaniel said, noting he will come up and hug wrestlers and has quickly become a favorite of the performers some of whom have been carrying “Logan is my Hero” signs to the ring. “We want to do what we can to help him out.”


McDaniel says Saturday would be a perfect night for people who have been thinking about trying out TAP Wrestling.


“It’s going to be a great show and it all goes to a good cause,” McDaniel said, noting the wrestlers are all giving up their pay for the night and contributing it to Logan’s Heroes.
