(NOTE:Gambit's regular second line correspondent, Deborah "Big Red" Cotton was one of the 19 shooting victim's during the Mother's Day second line so I will be taking over her duties until she recovers. A replacement blood drive to benefit victims of the shooting will take place Wednesday May 22 on Frenchmen Street. A benefit concert is being held Thursday May 23 at Tipitina's. Our continued thoughts and prayers are with the victims.)
This week's second line, which will be closing down parts of St. Charles Avenue, is being dedicated to the victims of the Mother's Day second line shooting. Speaking over the phone, Divine Ladies Social Aid & Pleasure Club President Angelina Sever said that a special thanks goes out to Deborah Cotton.
"Deborah Cotton was a big supporter of the Divine Ladies so we're doing a special thanks in our show to her," Sever said. "We want everyone to keep everything good and hope we can stop all this killing and all the violence."
