A beach benefit for island local Dale Owens will be held at Valerie's Lounge, 17264 San Carlos Blvd., Sunday, June 4, from noon to 6 p.m.

As organizer and local musician John Hyatt explains, "Dale was recently in a bad motorcycle accident, and he needs our help. He shattered his pelvis and needs help with his medical bills. He's a great guy, local resident, who's always been there for people in need. Now it's his turn to get the help he needs."

During the special rain-or-shine benefit inside the cool establishment, there will be plenty of raffles, prizes, silent auctions and 50/50s, as well as live music all day, including from the Flying Hasselhoffs, Bite the Bullet and Zen.
