The Cauliflower Alley Club supports the Gamblins with a $1,000 check

Over these past 14 years, the Cauliflower Alley Club benevolent fund has distributed grants totaling over $40,000 to retired wrestlers, managers, referees and others associated with the wrestling business who have been in need.

Earlier this summer rising wrestling star Jack Gamble had traveled to St Louis to wrestle at the Historic South Broadway Athletic Club, along with a few other wrestlers from the Harley Race Wrestling Academy in separate cars. After being victorious in tag team action with his partner Jon Webb, Gamble traveled back home with his wife Casey , who was sitting in the front of the car, his daughter Rylee, and fellow young WLW student David Schermerhorn.

Life can change in a moment and on this night it was no different. As the were headed home after an exciting night of wrestling tragedy struck. They were hit head on by a drunk driver running from the police.

While, thankfully, David and their daughter Rylee escaped with just some bruises, Jack and his wife were not so lucky, as the two were Life-Flighted to the St John’s Mercy hospital. Thanks to the quality care and love from their family, friends and fans they have been slowly recovering from their injuries. Still, the cost of the medical and home bills have been very high as the two have been unable to work.

During this time many people within both his home and wrestling community have come together to support the family with donations through Paypal, fundraisers and most recently at a Harley Race WLW show in Linn, Missouri.


One of the proud supporters of the Gamblins family was The Cauliflower Alley Club. The CAC is a non-profit fraternal organization, comprising both retired and active professional wrestlers and boxers in North America. The CAC was represented by former CAC Chairman of the Board of Directors, Executive Vice President Karl Lauer who presented the Gamblins with a check out a $1,000.

Win a free Cauliflower Alley Club membership!!

Posted by flairwhoooooo on March 22, 2009


By Brian Kelley

The Cauliflower Alley Club has been around for around since 1965 but if you happen to ask most wrestling fans (and some wrestlers) just exactly what and who they are? I am sure you might get some blank faces.

The CAC is a non-profit fraternal organization, the membership is world wide comprised of both retired and active professional wrestlers and boxers. The CAC also includes movie and TV stars who have played wrestlers or boxers

“The Ring of Friendship” as it is properly called has shown their kindness with helping the past and the present; They Help our hero’s in need with the CAC Benevolent fund. The fund was started over 14 years ago at the direction of former President, Lou Thesz, with an original donation of $2,000 from the estate of Mike Mazurki. Over these past 14 years, the benevolent fund has distributed grants totaling over $40,000 to retired wrestlers, managers, referees and others associated with the wrestling business who have been in need.

The CAC Scholarship Fund is prepared to offer financial assistance to those qualified individuals in need. Scholarships ranging from $250 to a maximum of $2,000 can be awarded to high school students preparing to head to college and those already in college who are in need of assistance. While most of their recipients have been wrestlers and it is certainly a pleasure to offer financial assistance to the next generation of great amateur wrestlers, the scholarship is available to those outside the wrestling world as well. As a matter of fact, they have awarded scholarships to two individuals outside of wrestling programs. In 2002, the CAC Scholarship Fund awarded Nick the maximum $2,000, but, upon announcement of how much his college bill was, through donations from members, Nick left CAC with over $12,000. That is what this club is about.

The CAC will be hosting the 2009 reunion April 13,14,15 in The Gold Coast Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The reunion will be having an awards banquet with a who’s who of Pro Wrestling past and present. Last year Stone Cold Steve Austin and Jim Ross made an appearance. This year JJ Dillon will be the master of Ceremonies. This is just a small listed of wrestlers expected to attend, Ted Dibiase, Super Star Billy Graham, Iron Sheik, Trevor Murdoch, Greg Gagne, Jean Antone plus 45 returning legends returning with many more confirming everyday.

During the weekend you can join in the first ever Wrestlebowl, a bowling tournament that is sure to be one of a kind. Of course there will be a wrestling show, that will be on April 12 and any wrestlers that would like to be a part of this dream card and let the best in the business see you MUST be a Cauliflower Alley Club member and membership credentials will be verified. I would highly advise trying to be part of history, they ask to send an e-mail with a resume and photo to Pro Wrestling Revolution at

Wow, that is a lot to miss out on. Don’t feel bad, I consider myself a lifelong wrestling fan and just recently took the initiative to become a member. For only $25.00 a year it was a small show of gratitude to the people that have entertained throughout the years. I was delighted when I received my very first issue of The Ear the CAC’S newsletter which comes out several times a year, 12 full pages of news, pictures, feature stories, announcements of upcoming events and other items of interest. You will also have a special place in “The Ring of Friendship.” Members also receive a membership card and parchment membership certificate, which is suitable for framing

Wrestling fans the CAC is just not a place for “The Boys” it is a place for everyone that want to show respect to the wrestlers and the sport we love. Anyone can join the club. You do not need to be involved in a ring-related profession. THE CAULIFLOWER ALLEY CLUB RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE MEMBERSHIP TO ANYONE DEEMED NOT IN SUPPORT OF THE FRIENDSHIP POLICY

If you have any further questions, please call Karl Lauer at (573) 729-2775, or e-mail at CAC@CauliflowerAlleyClub.org.
