A celebration of life barbecue picnic to honor the late Joey Awlasewicz is planned for Oct. 5 in Danbury.

Festivities will run from 1 to 5 p.m. at Hatters Park, Hayestown Road.

Joey, 11, died in a all-terrain vehicle accident earlier this year in Roxbury.

Tickets are $45 for adults and free for children 12 and under.

Checks may be made payable to the Joe Awlasewicz Fund.

Funds raised will benefit the construction of a trail with a bronze statue of Joey that will be placed near Booth Free School in Roxbury.
