Two weeks ago, Memphis Police Officer Verdell Smith was killed in a car chase at B.B. King and Beale. However, he was not the only victim in that crime spree. Two men, Al Sakan and Josh Walton, were shot in The Pinch before the chase began. They are still in the hospital. This Saturday evening, June 25 beginning at 6 PM, there will be a fundraiser for Sakan and Walton at Westy’s. Live music by Roosevelt Brooks, Keith Blanchard of GTA, and No Control.

The money can be spent on any product Amazon sells, not just ebooks.
