About Peck's Pals

Close Friends of Jimmy Peckenpaugh

Peck’s Pals is a group of close friends of Jimmy Peckenpaugh, who was tragically diagnosed with ALS in 2015.  An avid golfer with four holes-in-one to his credit, Jimmy played golf even after his diagnosis, up until the time he could no longer stand on his own.

The Boo Classic is a charitable event to honor Jimmy and to benefit the Steve Gleason ALS Foundation.  Knowing Jimmy’s love of laughter and of making others laugh, Peck’s Pals thought a Halloween Costume Party during and after the event was a great idea,

Now confined to a wheel chair, Jimmy hasn’t lost his adventurous spirit, as just last weekend he was riding a 4-wheeler with friends along Mississippi trails.  You can be sure Peck will be at the event, in costume, and with that broad smile and country-boy charm that is vintage Jimmy Peckenpaugh.
