Charity event
21 Oct 2006    

By Nicola West (Web Correspondent)

Despite his run of bad luck recently, Jim still had time for some charity work.

The Irvine based 'Free Wheelchair Mission' held a fundraiser on July 25th at Turnip Rose in Costa Mesa. The night was dedicated to raising money to provide wheelchairs in developing countries and was made even more memorable by the quiet and unassuming appearance of Jim, accompanied by Jenny. The event raised $1 million and included an "anonymous" donation of $200,000, which coincided with Jims departure. The night raised enough to provide 21,000 wheelchairs.
