Over 40 volunteers from the Bill Glass Behind the Wall organization brought messages of hope to those incarcerated at Pelican Bay State Prison.
The June 4 Bill Glass event included two guest speaker volunteers sharing positive messages. In addition, three classic cars were displayed.
Speakers included Jonathon Spinks, a former professional boxer and kick-boxing champion, and singer Emille Crawford. She sang several songs and spoke about her inspirational life story.
Spinks, once a professional fighter, spoke about getting shot in the head with a sawed-off shotgun, nearly claiming his life. He almost died a second time in a 120-mph motorcycle accident.
After the main presentations, attendees spoke with volunteers, sharing their personal stories and current rehabilitation paths.
