Hundreds turn out for Wells benefit

SIX MILE — Hundreds of people turned out for a benefit for Rocky Wells Saturday.
Wells is a retired U.S. Marine who fought in the Vietnam War and now operates the store and gas pumps at Gap Hill Landing in Six Mile.
He is in a life-and-death battle with cancer and is being treated in Charleston.
After a recent battle with the disease, he was left with significant deterioration to his jaw bone. He has now undergone major surgery to reconstruct his jaw bone using a small bone from his leg.
He is doing well and recovering; however, the surgery came at a huge medical cost.
Gap Hill fishermen are joining together to conduct several benefit activities to support Wells’ medical expenses.
Saturday’s event featured a concert from Upstate rock band StoneEcho. Around 1,000 people were in attendance for the concert.
