Elk Horn Brewery to hold benefit concert
EUGENE, Ore. - In remembrance of their dear friend Buddy Sawyer, the Elk Horn Brewery will be holding a benefit concert for local art programs and Lane County schools on Saturday afternoon.
The Buddy Sawyer Memorial Concert begins at 4 p.m. and will run until around 9 p.m.
Sawyer, a local musician and muralist, died last year in an accident at Matthew Knight Arena while helping to set up a stage.
Because Sawyer was so involved in the music and art scene in Eugene, the Elk Horn Brewery wanted to hold a fundraiser for his passions in his name.
Members of Sawyer's band will be performing at the benefit, and a special Cajun crawfish plate will be served, with a portion of the proceeds going to local art programs.
The Elk Horn will also be broadcasting the fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather for free.
