The benefit at Harmony Park will feature live music and will include a silent auction, raffles and a bounce house for kids.

“We’ll have great food including chicken plates for $12 and a barbecue sandwich snack lunch for $10,” Griffin said.

Pre-sale food tickets are available at the BBQ House on Highway 231 north of Troy.

Following the Benefit for Ben at Harmony Park motorcyclists are invited to participate in a Motorcycle Ride for Ben at 4 p.m. beginning at the BBQ House and will circle back to the BBQ House.

A $20 donation for each rider will also benefit Ben McQuagge as he moves forward with his treatments at MD Anderson.

“All sales proceeds and donations will go directly to Ben and his family for the medical expenses of his treatments,” Griffin said. “The family is grateful for the community’s support and prayers during Ben’s battle with cancer.”
