3 live performances by some of Mark’s favorite local bands:
This is just one of the ways that we think is the best to celebrate Mark Proctor. On Friday May 14th we are dedicating a night to celebrate Mark and to establish an ongoing fund, in Mark’s name, to benefit local musicians who are on a dedicated path of music, or who could use a helping hand to get on that path. Mark believed in creativity, especially through music, and we believe he would be honored to know his name will live on in this way.
We will be taking donations to establish a fund in Mark’s name that will benefit local musicians in their learning and growth. For this event, 100% of donations will go to the Floyd local Handmade Music School: Share the Music scholarship programs – These incredible scholarships offer any person who cannot afford music learning opportunities the ability to do so by filling out a simple form requesting the funds for the program of their choice, no questions asked.
Dogtown will donate 20% of sales for the night if total donation goal of $2500 is reached!
At Dogtown, there are certain community members that leave a “Mark” on our staff, our customers, and our business as a whole. Mark Proctor is one of them. Mark passed unexpectedly in February this year. He was a staple of our community and a long-time, regular customer at Dogtown and ALWAYS quickly befriended our staff and our customers. His kind and warm hearted spirit had a special kind of humor that uplifted anyone he came in contact with, young and old. He had a humble wisdom, which he would always share with anyone who seemed interested to sit with him to talk. He loved the people of our community (old and new) and embraced them with so much respect and curiosity. He loved creativity and MUSIC – he rarely missed live music on our stage and happily showed his support for local music and the dedicated, talented musicians who provide it to our sweet Floyd town.
