A benefit/fundraiser to aid Jefferson High baseball coach John Lowery, Sr. is being planned for Saturday, Feb. 16 at Longshots Billiards on Rte. 340.
The event is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. and will have live entertainment. Coach Lowery’s home near Shepherdstown burned beyond repair about a month ago.
The benefit is being organized by Randy Rutherford. Rutherford wants as many Jefferson baseball alumni, baseball boosters, school alumni, Lowery’s co-workers at the high school or when he was teaching at Harpers Ferry High, and friends to attend if possible.
Rutherford’s band, Funnybone, will provide entertainment.
Anyone seeking more information about Saturday’s event can call Randy Rutherford at (304) 820-8000.
