Keystone Blind’s Sizzler for Sight set for Oct. 6

HERMITAGE — This year’s Perry R. Templeton Memorial Sizzler for Sight promises to be a smokin’ good time.

The Keystone Blind Association’s annual barbecue and smoker event will be from 5 to 10 p.m. Oct. 6 at the Mercer County Shrine Club, 4201 Lamor Road, Hermitage.

Renamed last year in honor of Templeton, the association’s former vice president of operations, the night celebrates several things the man enjoyed: friendly conversation, good food, home brews and fine cigars.

There will also be musical entertainment by The FX Project and a Chinese auction and 50/50 and reverse raffles.

Proceeds go to the association, which provides services for blind and visually impaired people. The agency does everything from drive people to doctor’s appointments to job training and has many programs for children.

Funds from the sizzler will go to the Perry R. Templeton Memorial Fund for Keystone Blind Association, established through the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio. Money will go toward special items or equipment, not operating costs.

Templeton died in November 2009 at the age of 43. The Sharpsville High School graduate played football for Eastern Arizona College, started his own businesses and was active in many civic organizations.

Tickets for the sixth annual event are available at Keystone Blind Association, 1230 Stambaugh Ave., Sharon.

People must be at least 21 years old to attend.
