Ben’s Tire Sales in Joppa held its First Annual Bull and Shrimp Roast on November 15, 2014. It was held at Richlin Ballroom in Edgewood to benefit The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today. Watch their video to find out how they will get to a cure.
Ben Hayes daughter, Laura Hayes Guthrie said, “We had a sold out crowd of 400 people and earned over $11,000 which is being donated to The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Many local business’s such as Four Seasons Nursery and Landscape Services, C. Miller Excavating, Auston Contracting and Bobby’s Pottys, helped by buying tables and giving cash donations. My sister, Lisa Hayes Snodgrass, and I worked hard on putting this together, and it was well worth it. We gave away over 40 door prizes and over 100 items were won in auctions. We were so excited, we already booked Richlin Ballroom for next years event on November 14, 2015.”
