MO: Hunter suffers brain injury
November 3, 2010
Friends organize fundraiser for injured hunter
Friends and family of Adam Pritchard are joining together to raise funds
after he fell from a tree blind resulting in a brain injury.
Russ Wittman, who has been friends with Pritchard for a decade, described
his "hunting and fishing buddy" as an avid hunter who had a passion for bow
"By June or July he was already rattling off the days until bow hunting
season," Wittman said.
Just more than two weeks ago, Pritchard was hunting with a family member
when he fell from the blind. Wittman said Pritchard was hospitalized and is
still feeling the effects of the head injury.
Wittman said friends and family are raising money for Pritchard, who has
two children, to cover expenses until he can return to work as a plumber.
A fish fry benefit will be held from 4:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the
Smithton Community Center, located at 200 S. Chestnut Ave.
The meal will include fried fish, potato salad, baked beans, dessert and
a beverage. Tickets are $5 per person and children younger than 8 can eat
The group also plans to hold a raffle during the dinner with various
prizes, including a Ruger 10/22 rifle.
