Dean & Pepper Parris
In October of 2012, Dean Parris was in a near-tragic scooter accident while on the Simple Man VI cruise in Cozumel, Mexico. Ultimately suffering a severe traumatic brain injury, Dean began a road of recovery that revealed to he and his wife Pepper, some of the most amazing, caring and loving folks who give their time and talents to Veterans in need. Dean was the recipient of several alternative medical therapies, including chiropractic care that was provided by Helios Warriors. Along with their help, he also began equine therapy offered by Heart Of Horse Sense. Both of these organizations offer their services to veterans at low to no cost. In an effort to do their best to show their gratitude for these wonderful organizations, Pepper, Dean's wife, introduced the 2 organizations to each other. What came of that was VET FEST 2014, a concert and event to raise much needed funds for both groups. Highland Brewing provided the setting for this event and agreed to donate $1 per every beer sold. Next, the gift of music was given in kind by some of their Southern Rockin' country friends, Andy Buckner and the boys from Preacher Stone. Add some chili from local restaurants all around Asheville and you have a PARTY. Come show your support for those who help the men & women who protect us and ensure our freedom. Come to Vet Fest 2014, or please consider donating here. Thank you so much!
