Joey’s Story, free dinner planned for Nov. 13

By Lavin Schwan and Tim Buit • Updated Oct 27, 2017 at 12:46 AM

Joey’s Story will be held Monday, Nov. 13, at Bellevue High School.

There will be a free dinner at 6 p.m. in the BHS cafeteria provided by Bone Boys BBQ. Joey’s Story will begin at 7 p.m. in the BHS gym, presented by Lavin and Tom Schwan.

We have had the privilege of sharing "Joey's Story" to middle and high school students in Bellevue, Monroeville, Perkins and Mohawk. After each presentation the students amaze and touch us with some very heartfelt, profound, and at times thought provoking questions. After each presentation some of the students will go home and share what they heard, and inevitably, I will get three or four parents/adults who say, "I wish I could hear your presentation.”

I doubt that there is anyone who would argue that we are not in the midst of an awful, ugly, devastating epidemic, and kids/students, parents, communities are being affected.

We have joined forces with The Bellevue City Schools & The Bellevue Hospital, to bring this message, "Joey's Story", to all, young, old, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, all are invited.

We will begin the evening with dinner, donated by Bone Boys BBQ, free of charge in the Bellevue High School cafeteria at 6:00 pm, with the presentation to follow at 7:00 pm. Please consider joining us. We have set this presentation up as an "event" on our Bone Boys page, please visit our page and indicate your attendance, so that we may accurately and adequately prepare enough food. Or you may reach out to me at [email protected]

EDITOR’S NOTE: Lavin Schwan serves as executive assistant to Mike Winthrop, president and chief executive office at The Bellevue Hospital, and Tim Buit serves as executive vice president and chief financial officer.
