A fundraiser is set for this Saturday to benefit the Drew Shearin Music Scholarship.

Drew Shearin was a popular music student at Knox Community High School when he was killed in a single vehicle accident east of Knox on State Road 8 in October 2011 at the age of 17.

The fundraising event will be held Saturday, Aug. 3 at the Washington Township Fire Department on State Road 23 in Knox. There will be a motorcycle ride and truck ride at 11:30 a.m. that begins at the fire department and then a hog roast and live music and entertainment will begin around 4 p.m. CT. A live auction will be featured from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Donate your used or broken instrument for a dinner ticket and a tax receipt.

For $15 you can participate in the motorcycle/truck ride with dinner included. The cost will be $20 with a passenger. If you would like to simply enjoy the hog roast, the cost will be $9 for adults and $5 for children under 10 years of age.
