BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Jimmy’s Famous Seafood is making its Mo Gaba kid’s shrimp platter a permanent fixture on its menu and plans to donate some of the proceeds to the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
Gaba, 14, died in late July after fighting cancer for the fourth time. The Orioles and Ravens superfan gained Baltimore’s attention and love when he began calling in to 105.7 The Fan in 2015.
