A volunteer hands out a barbecue plate to a waiting customer during the Okie 101.7 Maples-Washington Family Fundraiser on Tuesday. The “drive-by BBQ” was one of two fundraisers scheduled this week to help Mark and Kim Maples after an Oct. 20 claimed the life of Kim’s daughter Kirstey Washington and placed both Kim and Mark in the hospital. The second fundraiser, a benefit concert and silent auction held at the Muskogee Brewing Company, will be Friday. The benefit concert and bean dinner will begin at 5 p.m., while the silent auction will accept bids all day, then close bidding at 8 p.m.
