A celebration of life benefit for 21-year-old Cape Coral man Joshua Williams will be held at Catch 22 Sports Bar, 1400 Colonial Blvd., Sunday, July 9, from noon to 8 p.m. Organizers are requesting the help of the public, seeking items for the benefit's silent auctions and raffle prizes.

Joshua died in a motorcycle crash that occurred in central Cape Coral at approximately 1:17 a.m., May 22. According to benefit lead organizer Ted Haney, funds raised during the July 9 gathering will go to covering Williams' medical costs and final expenses, which is why such an urgent call has been given for raffle prizes and silent auction donations.

"Anything helps," Ted said. "There's seven bands donating their time for this benefit, as well as Catch 22 and no one is more deserving than Nick (Calixico) and Jill (Williams) (Williams' parents). This is a devastating tragedy."

The day will be filled with music from seven local bands, all coming forward to do their part in performing for the benefit, including Myth, the Flying Hasselhoffs, Spectrum, Mad Hatter, Dog Fish, Half Moon and Bite the Bullet.

Along with raffles and silent auctions, enjoy your chance at winning some 50/50s and great food and drink specials.

To make a donation to the cause, call Ted Haney, 239-895-5212.
