Kiefer Classic 2011
Tallahassee, Fl, Dec 16th, 2010. Four unlikely alliances have teamed up to help fund emergency treatment for sudden brain injuries. On January 23rd, 2011, Tallahassee Big Dog Rescue, Wilson Family Medicine, Fairview Middle School & Ballers On Budgets.com are happy to announce â€œThe Kiefer Classic 2011â€, a benefit wrestling show with portions of the ticket proceeds going to the University of Florida’s Shands Hospital Neuro In…tensive care unit.
Susan Lynn Kiefer is the Sister to local independent wrestler Scott “Storm” Goodlin. She is the mother to 3 children; Cody (who has Downs Syndrome) Arron & Brayden. Cody & Arron enjoy many different things but the one thing they both enjoy more than anything is the time the family spends together, especially when wrestling is on. Arron’s favorite is John Cena while Cody prefers The Undertaker.
On Memorial Day of 2009, 3 month old Brayden Robert Kiefer, had died during the night. Eight months later, on February 4, 2010, while riding in a car with a friend, Susan abruptly became unresponsive. As her friend pulled the car over, She realized that Susan wasn’t breathing. She started performing CPR until the paramedics arrived. It was deemed that Susan had suffered Cardiac Arrest (she was only 35 years old). She was taken to the local hospital in Pensacola Fl, & diagnosed with an Aneurysm on the Brain Stem. After testing, there was nothing they could do at that facility, so she was airlifted to Shand’s Hospital in Gainsville, Florida. As the family gathered in Gainsville, Susan survived 12 days before being pronounced Brain Dead on February 16, 2010. She was an organ donor, saving 5 people including a 16 YO girl who received her heart.
The First annual â€œKiefer Classicâ€ was held in Tallahassee, Fl in memory of Susan to assist the family in the funeral cost. Her Father, Husband, Kids, Sisters, Nieces and Nephews were all in attendance. Some of the best that Independent Wrestling has to offer today donated their time and energy free of charge to participate including â€œMD3â€ Morgan Davis , Â½ of â€œFirst Stringâ€ AJ Strokes, â€œMr Pump Yo Brakesâ€ Steve Goins, Jake Slater, and the eventual winner â€œThe Port City Prodigyâ€ Dallas Riley.
This year will be a Tag Team Tournament with teams coming in from all over the country to participate.
