A local realtor, Maureen Barber, has created a foundation in memory of her ex-husband, Brad Barber, who died last year due to suicide. She donates 10 percent of her commission to her foundation and 10 percent to her client’s charity.
In addition, she’s putting on her first event, Rock 4 A Cause! concert, Saturday, July 16.
Her story is very sad, obviously, but, as a result of his death and in his memory, she’s created something positive.
I’ve written about her on the North County Current site, so you can get more information there, or you can go directly to her site, www.jbbarber.org (That’s the JB Barber Memorial Foundation, where you can buy a ticket!) That day, I’ll be on the West Coast, so I’ll miss it. The concert features Scott Benge and Acoustic Remedy, and tickets are $50. The concert is at the Borland Center, 4885 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. Doors open at 7 p.m.
