Trading Ford Baptist Church to hold a memorial concert
Published at 00:00 on Sunday, October 9, 2022
Trading Ford Baptist Church will host the Ben Motley Memorial Concert at 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 16. Motley passed away in a tragic accident on November 20 two years ago, and the many people his life touched continue to remember him fondly. This concert is a small way to continue to remember him and his service to others.
There will be no admission charge, however, there will be a love offer received for guest artist, Second Chance Bluegrass Band. Opportunities to donate to Saving Grace K-9s will also be available. This grassroots organization works to provide veterans with trained service dogs to help them deal with PTSD and other issues. This program was close to Motley as he helped train service animals for the program, volunteered on projects, and served on its board of directors.
The concert starts at 6 p.m., doors open at 5 p.m. Concessions will be served in the Community Hall from 5:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. No concessions will be served during the concert and all food and beverages must be enjoyed in the Community Hall. Proceeds from the concessions will go to Saving Grace K-9. Trading Ford Baptist Church is located at 3600 Long Ferry Road in Salisbury.
