Rockin’ for Rick fundraiser a success


Brooke Brown Ruffin, Special to the EDN

The second annual Rockin’ for Rick Sparkman fundraiser for the National Brain Cancer Society was held Saturday evening at the Sokol. The event was hosted by Ashley Sparkman and family and friends. Rick Sparkman, of Bristol, passed away on Dec. 1, 2012 of glioblastoma multiforme stage 4 and his family wanted to start raising funds for the National Brain Cancer Society.

“What we went through the year he was sick was a beating on the entire family.” Sparkman said. “If we can help others families not have to go through that or help in anyway, we wanted to do that.”

Last year the fundraiser hosted a classic rock band and raised around $14,000.
