STERLING – A benefit for the children of Bryan Schrimpf, who died Sept. 8 in a motorcycle accident, is planned from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Johnny’s Bar and Grill, 707 Freeport Road.

The event’s proceeds will go toward Schrimpf’s funeral expenses, and education and care expenses for his children, Addyson and Eastyn.

The benefit also will serve as a birthday party for Schrimpf, who would have been turning 21.

There will be a taco bar from 1 to 4 p.m. An auction and 50/50 raffles are planned for the event.

Live music will be provided by Cal Stage Band, Rout 38 and more.
