Grassroots Equipment and Outdoors is partnering with Townsend Spice and Supply to present The Cleverlys at Ozarka College on September 10.
The concert will be held in the John E. Miller Education Complex Auditorium in Melbourne and will begin at 7:00 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Earnie Blackley Memorial Scholarship Fund. Remaining funds will support ICARE, an organization which comes to the aid of abandoned and abused animals.
"Losing Earnie was a huge blow to this community, and we felt like hosting a concert in his memory would be the least we could do to honor a life dedicated to law enforcement and public service, " said Shane Lynn, owner of Townsend Spice & Supply. "It is our hope that this fundraiser will endow a scholarship in his name."
Tickets are on sale for $25 online at thecleverlys.com or please call 870.291.1937 to purchase tickets.
Originally planned for April 2020, the benefit concert to honor Sheriff Blackley was rescheduled due to the pandemic. To learn more about how to support Ozarka College Foundation scholarships, please contact Dr. Josh Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 870.368.2042.
