Music on Main runs from 6-9 p.m. GoodBye Eddie will take the stage playing all your classic rock favorites. Beer, wine and food sales will benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD). Local residents Nick and Jennifer Tullio will be pouring and serving beverages to guests, along with about 25 volunteers, to raise money to end Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The Tullio’s son, Grayson, was diagnosed with Duchenne in 2005. PPMD is a non-profit organization founded in 1994 by parents and grandparents of children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. PPMD is internationally recognized as the leader in the Duchenne community.
