Moe turned 42 today. A Chimpanzee, he isn't with the couple he loves most: Jim and La Donna Davis. He's living in an animal preserve near San Bernardino.
Moe can't be with Jim and La Donna Davis because in the summer of 2005 other chimps mauled Jim. In the attack, the renegade chimpanzees ripped off his nose, an eye, most of his fingers, both testicles and much of the flesh from his buttocks and face and left foot, leaving him near death when he was rescued.
It wasn't expected that he would survive. But he has. That was the first miracle. Another miracle:his mind is clear. But unable to return to work, the former stock car racer and auto body shop owner racer have fallen on very hard times. Left badly disfigured, Jim and his wife have been grateful to the doctors and staff of Loma Linda Hospital who have often volunteered their services. However, as anyone who has had their life so critically interrupted will tell us, medical expenses are not the only expenses one has to meet at such times.
This Saturday, March 8th at 2 PM, a benefit concert featuring Eleanor "C-Pass" Jones will be held at the Dean's Swim Club, 1010 Overlook Ridge Rd, Diamond Bar, CA 91765. 100% of proceeds will go directly to help Jim and La Donna with their daily living expenses.
The cost of the event is only $20. Checks can be made out to Jim or La Donna Davis and may be paid at the door. If you would like to make a donation in lieu of attendance, please make checks or money orders payable to Jim or La Donna Davis and mail to C-Pass Enterprises, Inc., P.O Box 2418, Inglewood, CA 90305.
