Recently, Sonoma’s Bryan Byrd, known by friends as Papa, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. As he attempts to recover, including waiting on a bone marrow transplant, his wife Penny, known better as Popo the Clown, and the whole Byrd family have taken on increasing financial and personal stress. This weekend, the community is coming together for them at the Fam Bam benefit bash that will feature live music from popular Sonoma County bands like BackTrax and Plan B. There will also be a raffle, delicious barbecue, kids’ activities and more. All proceeds go to the Byrd family, and it’s all happening on Sunday, May 22, at Rossi’s 1906, 401 Grove St., Sonoma. 2pm. By donation. 707343.0044.
