A Basin Bash Amateur BBQ Cook-off and Music Festival Benefit for John “Stix” Tsesmelis has been scheduled from noon to 10 p.m. Friday at La Hacienda Event Center, 12600 Texas 191 Frontage, Midland.

There will be great BBQ and music by The StateLine Band and other local bands.

All proceeds will go towards costs for rehabilitation and special equipment for Tsesmelis, who has a spinal cord injury and is paralyzed from the neck down as the result of an accident.

Admission for adults is $10 at the gate. Kids under age 18 get in free.

Donations may also be made online at www.gofundme.com/Hisfaithandwill.
