Local Businesses Unite To Help Another Local Business
Several local businesses supported another local business by attending the Ben’s 2nd Annual Bull & Shrimp Roast held at Richlin Ballroom in Edgewood. Ben’s Tire Sales sponsored their 2nd annual fundraiser benefiting all those who suffer with and have battled Parkinson’s disease. Last year they donated over twelve thousand dollars to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, this year, they raised over fifteen thousand dollars. Businesses that attended included Four Season’s Nursery and Landscape Services, Sherwood Amusements, Bobby’s Portable Restrooms, C. Miller Excavating, Benjer, Beavers’ Auto Body Repair Center, Hoban’s Welding, Alumni Logistics, Apollo Trucking, The Waters Company, Wockenfuss Candies, Johnny B’s Hauling, Kanga Rhew, OMO, Thompson’s Moving, RBS Trucking, Tracy’s Properties, Vulcan, River City Truck and Trailer Repair and Hurley’s Golf Carts.
People were bidding on all types of auction items including autographed jerseys from Baltimore Ravens player, Steve Smith Sr., Baltimore Orioles player, Adam Jones, and Pro Football Hall of Famer and Baltimore Colts Legend, Lenny Moore. Local Artist, Shawn Forton had items on hand for auction as well. Volunteers from Kohl’s were onsite to help with the activities as well.
At one point, Four Season’s Nursery and Landscape Services donated money in order to play a game of corn hole in the center of the dance floor, to which, Sherwood Amusements quickly donated and challenged them.
The event was such a huge success that Ben’s Tire Sales already booked Richlin Ballroom for next year’s event, to be held on November 5, 2016. Laura Guthrie has stated that people can start reserving tickets now by calling 410-292-1079 or 410-679-8298.
